New App Displays What Original Medicare Covers
WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, CMS launched a new app that gives consumers “a modernized Medicare experience” with direct access on a mobile device to some of the most-used content on Medicare.gov. According to a CMS press release, the new “What’s Covered” app “lets people with Original Medicare, caregivers and others quickly see whether Medicare covers a specific medical item or service. Consumers can now use their mobile device to more easily get accurate, consistent Original Medicare coverage information in the doctor’s office, the hospital, or anywhere else they use their mobile device. In addition to the “What’s Covered” app, through Blue Button 2.0 the agency is enabling beneficiaries to connect their claims data to applications and tools developed by innovative private-sector companies to help them understand, use, and share their health data.”
