From CMS: Newly Updated Coverage to Care Resources Now Available!

Understanding health coverage can be confusing, but the Coverage to Care (C2C) initiative is making it easier. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Office of Minority Health (CMS OMH) released newly updated C2C resources to help those consumers you serve understand their health coverage and to get health care services they need.

The following resources are now available on the C2C website:

  • Roadmap to Better Care – Explains what health coverage is and how to use it to get primary care and preventive services. (English | Spanish)
  • Roadmap to Behavioral Health – A companion guide for mental health and substance use service, to be used in conjunction with the Roadmap to Better Care. (English | Spanish)
  • Getting the Care You Need: Guide for People with Disabilities – Provides information to ensure that people with disabilities understand their rights so that they receive equal access to quality health care services. (English | Spanish)
  • Chronic Care Management (CCM) Resources – Discusses the benefits of CCM for patients with multiple chronic conditions and provides health care professionals with resources to implement CCM into their practices.
  • Managing Diabetes: Coverage & Resources – Includes tips to help patients manage diabetes, as well as information on Marketplace and Medicare coverage. (English | Spanish)
  • Preventive Services Flyers – Use these flyers to take advantage of services available at no cost under most health coverage.
  • Prevention: Put Your Health First Tabloid – Use this infographic to learn more about how to put your health first. (English | Spanish)
  • My Health Coverage at-a-Glance – Shows how to keep track of health plan information and payment in a customizable format. (English | Spanish)

C2C will release these resources in additional languages (Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, and Vietnamese) later this summer, so we encourage you to continue to visit and sign up for our listserv to be sure to receive any updates.
