CMS launches app to help seniors determine what Medicare covers
Modern Healthcare

The CMS on Monday released a new app that tells seniors what Medicare will cover, which is part of its plan to help seniors decide between coverage options.

The What’s Covered app will let seniors quickly see whether Medicare covers a specific item or service, the agency said. The goal is to provide more consistent information on Medicare coverage across different healthcare facilities and doctor offices.

“This new app is the next in a suite of products designed to give consumers more access and control over their Medicare information,” CMS Administrator Seema Verma said in a statement.
