Each month Medicare provides up-to-date information on the Medicare program in the form of monthly audio-conference calls. The National Medicare Training Program (NMTP) features CMS policy experts who provide information for medical office providers. In addition to providing consistent, accurate, and reliable, they even answer your questions to current Medicare topics.
According to CMS, resources and materials provided through NMTP are designed in multiple formats for use by partners to provide information, education, and assistance to people with Medicare.
In addition to the audio-conference calls, Medicare also offers:
- National Train-the-Trainer Workshops
- Classroom Module
- Webinars and Virtual Training
- Resource Guide for Partner
This is an excellent resource for your medical office staff to find information for a variety of medical office functions. Visit CMS.gov/NationalMedicareTrainingProgram for more details.
