I’m passing on some important information about an upcoming live webcast, so listen up. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is announcing the launch of Ask Medicare, a new initiative for caregivers. During the one-hour Webcast, you will be able to:

Learn about Medicare’s new online resources for caregivers

Post questions to CMS Acting Administrator Kerry Weems & experts from AARP, J&J, and other organizations.

Browse the new Ask Medicare Website

Sign up for the Ask Medicare e-newsletter, which is dedicated to caregivers.

The webcast is being held on September 18, 2008 at at 12:00 pm ET. To register for the webcast, please go to http://www.medicare.gov/caregivers

I don’t know about you, but I don’t know a thing about Medicare. My patients and their family members ask me questions about this kind of stuff all of the time, and I don’t know what to say. I’m glad that they are launching this new website. I’ve signed up for the webcast, and I hope you do, too.
