Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who want to better understand the health insurance exchange initiative that resulted from the Affordable Care Act, also being called the health insurance marketplace, can tune in to webinars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Repeated several times throughout June and July, these training opportunities are broken into 2 levels:
Level 1: Health Insurance Marketplace 101. A 1-hour high-level overview of the accomplishments of the Affordable Care Act and a basic introduction to the marketplace (exchanges) highlighting who is eligible and how the marketplace will work.
Level 2: Understanding the Health Insurance Marketplace. A 2-hour detailed review of the marketplace (exchanges), including eligibility, enrollment, plan structure, Medicaid expansion, and the streamlined application.
The training sessions are free but first-come-first-served, with a limit of 200 people per session. CMS said, however, that it will add sessions if there's high demand.
