The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a new, multi-year initiative intended to modernize the ways beneficiaries receive information about Medicare and create new ways to assist health care decision-making. The tools that CMS is launching include:
- A “coverage wizard” intended to help beneficiaries compare traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage;
- A mobile optimized out of pocket cost calculator to provide information on costs, including prescription drug costs; and
- A simplified Medicare Plan Finder tool.
