Elite Healthcare and the Medicare Rights Center Offer Hospitals, Healthcare Organizations a Medicare Online Curriculum and Continuing Education for Nurses

Elite Healthcare, a comprehensive online learning destination for healthcare professionals, and Medicare Rights Center, the largest and most reliable independent source of Medicare information in the nation, today announced the introduction of a Medicare online curriculum and continuing education program for nurses. Available for hospital and other healthcare employers to provide for their nursing staff, Medicare Interactive (MI) Pro is an online curriculum designed to empower nursing professionals to help clients, patients and their families navigate Medicare questions.

“The Medicare Rights Center is pleased to partner with Elite Healthcare to offer MI Pro to nurses so they can learn how to help their patients navigate Medicare while earning continuing education hours at the same time,” said Fred Riccardi, president of the Medicare Rights Center. “MI Pro makes it easy to learn Medicare at one’s own pace anytime and anywhere, equipping nurses and other health care professionals with the timely, accurate information they need to ensure that their patients are getting the Medicare benefits they are entitled to receive.”

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, there were 60.6 million people receiving health coverage through Medicare by early 2019. By 2060, the Medicare-eligible population is projected to be 95 million or 23 percent of the population. The complexity of the system requires health care providers to be cognizant of the Medicare requirements in all levels of care.

“The landscape of affordable healthcare is constantly changing, and empowering nurses with knowledge of the complex Medicare environment will enable them to provide better care to their patients,” said Janet Blanner, General Manager of Elite Healthcare. “Elite Healthcare is thrilled to partner with the authority on Medicare information to provide healthcare institutions with valuable and much-needed training and continuing education for their staff.”

MI Pro is structured as a four-level progressive Core Curriculum, with four to five interactive courses in each level, covering topics ranging from health insurance terms to Medicare Part A, Part B and Part D, Medicare and Employer Insurance, Medicare Late Enrollment, Medicare and End-Stage Renal Disease and much more. A Special Topics portion of the resource addresses subjects not covered in the Core Curriculum, including subjects such as Medicare and Hospital Discharge Planning. Courses include videos, interactive aids and self-study pacing for nurses to become “Medicare Smart.”

Hospitals and other healthcare organizations can manage and track each nurse’s progress and completion of the program through Elite Healthcare’s Student Performance Manager. The Medicare Interactive Pro course package is up to 30 continuing education contact hours. Elite Healthcare is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation (ANCC), and all of the Medicare courses are ANCC-accredited.
