Medicare Rights Launches a Brand-New Medicare Interactive
–The Trusted Resource for Medicare Information is Better Than Ever –

New York, NY—Today, the Medicare Rights Center launched the new and improved Medicare Interactive, a free online resource packed with hundreds of answers to Medicare questions. Last year, more than 2 million questions were answered on Medicare Interactive for people looking for information from the largest and most reliable independent Medicare resource.

Medicare Interactive’s new design and features ensure that its users can quickly find the Medicare answers they need for themselves, a family member, or the clients they serve, through smart links to relevant MI pages and case examples, a roll-over glossary, and other helpful resources.

“We are proud to introduce the best version of Medicare Interactive ever,” said Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center. “With new tools to make finding information easier as well as new ways to learn about Medicare, Medicare Interactive is a powerful resource for current and future visitors.”

By creating a free Medicare Interactive profile, users can bookmark their favorite pages, manage newsletter subscriptions, access free exclusive links/downloads, and receive notices about key Medicare dates. As an initial thanks for registering, users will receive a welcome e-packet from the Medicare Rights Center, complete with the organization’s exclusive New to Medicare Guide.

Additionally, the Medicare Interactive Pro (MI Pro) learning curriculum, which will evolve further in the coming months, is for people who want to dig deeper into Medicare. MI Pro subscribers, can access exclusive in-depth Medicare content, quizzes to test their progress, and printable learning tools. They can keep track of where they left off within each course, and complete coursework at their own pace. Visitors can find out which courses are right for them by taking the free self-assessment.
