From the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services:

As promised, we have developed a Special Edition Medlearn Matters article that describes the information and education resources that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have developed to help physicians, providers, and suppliers meet their Medicare business needs. I encourage you to disseminate the article through the various vehicles you have available, such as electronic listservs and association newsletters, so that we can let as many people as possible know about these resources that are available to them.

The Medlearn Matters article titled "Information and Education Resources for Medicare Providers, Suppliers, and Physicians" (SE0454) is posted at on the CMS Website. I hope you and your association members find it helpful!

Also, the Medicare Learning Network is pleased to announce the online availability of two brochures that address the Medicare-Medicaid relationship and dual eligibility.

(1) The Medicare-Medicare Relationship: This brochure gives you a brief overview of the Medicaid program and the benefits that the program may provide to the Medicare beneficiary who has low income and limited resources.

(2) Medicaid At-A-Glance: This publication will provide you with basic information about the Medicaid program, including: key eligibility groups, categorically needy, medically needy, special groups, State Children's Health Insurance Program, mandatory state plan services, and state and federal poverty level charts.

Both brochures are available at www.cms.hhs.gov/medlearn.
