NASUAD’s Latest Work to Further MIPPA Outreach Efforts

In collaboration with professionals in the aging and disabilities network, the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) has developed outreach materials to promote Medicare low-income subsidies to beneficiaries with disabilities.

NASUAD Logo - National Association of States United for Aging and DisabilitiesIn 2008 Congress passed the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA), Pub. Law 110-275. MIPPA is a multi-faceted piece of legislation that contains several important provisions that directly change the Medicare program.

NASUAD created 3 posters to educate Medicare beneficiaries with disabilities about subsidies that may help them save on Medicare costs. NASUAD also developed a Tip Sheet for MIPPA outreach professionals to use as a quick reference tool about Medicare low-income subsidies and referral resources.

Feedback from local Centers for Independent Living and national stakeholders enabled NASUAD to improve these materials and establish an effective dissemination plan.

The posters include an editable space wherein outreach professionals may add contact information for their preferred referral source.
