Medicare Rights Center Launches a Brand-New Online Curriculum for Professionals
–A one-of-a-kind online Medicare learning tool–

New York, NY—Today, the Medicare Rights Center announced the launch of the new-and-improved Medicare Interactive Pro (MI Pro), a comprehensive online curriculum designed to empower any professional to better help their clients, patients, employees, retirees, and others navigate a multitude of Medicare questions.

Building on Medicare Rights’ 25 years of health care counseling and educational expertise, MI Pro offers a four-level Core Curriculum, with four to five courses in each level. Among the topics included are: “Medicare Basics,” “Medicare Appeals and Penalties,” and “Medicare and Other Insurance and Assistance Programs.”

Additionally, “Special Topics” courses augment the Core Curriculum to address specific Medicare subjects in detail for users who want to develop expertise in key Medicare areas, like Fall Open Enrollment.

“With 10,000 baby boomers in America turning 65 every day, the need for more professionals to become Medicare knowledge is critical,” said Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center, the nation’s largest and most reliable independent source of Medicare information and assistance. “MI Pro is suited to the needs of professionals from diverse fields – including human resources, financial advising, health care, and social work – to educate themselves, train their colleagues, and help their clients navigate the many nuances of Medicare.”

MI Pro subscribers have access to:

  • Interactive activities and knowledge quizzes
  • Automatic course bookmarking so learners can continue where they left off
  • An array of printable supplementary tools and fliers
  • Review tests at the end of every course –pass the course with a grade of 80% or higher and download a certificate of completion
  • Educational content vetted by a team of Medicare Rights Center experts
  • Closed captioning

MI Pro is structured so that each course level builds on the information learned in previous levels. A free assessment places users into the appropriate course and level, and quizzes and downloadable materials accompanying each course test subscribers’ knowledge.

Courses start at $20 each, with group rates available.

MI Pro is available today. To learn more, please visit www.medicareinteractive.org/pro.
