With support from the John A. Hartford Foundation, the Center for Medicare Advocacy has created a Council of beneficiary advocates, providers, policy-makers and other partners to discuss, analyze and advance the implementation of the Jimmo v. Sebelius “Improvement Standard” Settlement. The Council will convene on June 23, 2015 in Washington, DC.

I have the privilege of being invited to attend the Council meeting.  The Council’s goal is to create an active community dedicated to ensuring fair access to Medicare and necessary care for people with long-term and chronic conditions.

If you have any issues regarding the Medicare improvement standard or have materials regarding Jimmo that have helped your particular clientele and that you are willing to share, please feel free to email me at JRothkoff@rothkofflaw.com.  I will forward your concerns and materials to the Council.
