CMS to Conduct Webinar on Coverage to Care Initiative
Initiative seeks to help individuals make the most of their new health coverage

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of Minority Health will conduct a webinar July 30 from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. (PT) to provide an overview of CMS’ national From Coverage to Care (C2C) initiative. C2C is designed to help answer questions individuals may have about their new health coverage and to help them make the most of their new benefits, including taking full advantage of primary care and preventive services. C2C also seeks to give health care providers the tools they need to promote patient engagement. To register for the webinar, visit the online registration site.

The launch of the new program included release of the Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You, which includes eight steps to help consumers and health care providers learn about the diverse benefits available through their health coverage, as well as information on how to access primary care and preventive services; health care coverage terms; the differences between primary care and emergency care; and the cost differences between seeking care in- and out-of-network. The Roadmap is also available in Spanish.
