Medicare Rights Center Updates Its Free Online Resource

February 3, 2016

An updated version of Medicare Interactive, a free online resource aimed at answering questions people may have about Medicare, has just been launched by the Medicare Rights Center (MRC).

“We are proud to introduce the best version of Medicare Interactive ever,” Joe Baker, MRC president, said in a press release. “With new tools to make finding information easier as well as new ways to learn about Medicare, Medicare Interactive is a powerful resource for current and future visitors.”

In addition to its many redesigned features, Medicare Interactive features a section designed to help people who are new to Medicare learn about the various benefits available to them.

This section may be of particular interest to the aging direct-care workforce. PHI data shows that an additional half million direct-care workers will be age 55 and older by 2022.

Free registration for Medicare Interactive is available at the MRC website.
