“JIMMO vs SEBELIUS” An important case - recently settled - concerning Medicare regulations

Join the members of
the Senior Umbrella Network of Brooklyn as guest speaker
Judith
Grimaldi, Esq. of Grimaldi & Yeung, LLP discusses new Medicare regulations
that affect patients receiving services such as SNF, home health care, physical
therapy, etc.
Now “improvement” is no longer the standard. The
settlement of the case Jimmo vs Sebelius requires
that these services be based on patient
need
rather than continuing
improvement
- even if the need is only to maintain a level of function.
This is good news for patients who have been denied coverage of these services
due to lack of evidence of improvement. Also joining the meeting will be
Norma Y. Harris - Health Insurance Specialist, Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS). Admission is free and breakfast will be served.For further information email info@sunb.org  or call Vicki Ellner, SUN-B President &
Chair at 516-455-9612. Date is 4/23 from 9-11am @ Sunrise Senior Living at Sheepshead Bay, 2211 Emmons Avenue.
