    CMS Offers Webinars on Health Insurance Marketplace

    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.

    All: The story above has one link in it, to the webinars page of CMS. All registration info is provided there. Because these are CMS events, not APTA events, registration is through CMS.

    Carol and Yuriko: As the story states and a previous comment reminds: These webinars are provided by CMS. These are not APTA events. APTA cannot register you or provide you with confirmations. CMS is not reviewing the comments left on this story. Please click the "webinars" hyperlink in the article above to go to the CMS listing and follow the instructions there. If you need further assistance, you will need to contact training@cms.hhs.gov.
