“From Coverage to Care” outreach to engage doctors and new patients
To improve the health of the nation and reduce health care costs, people who have health insurance must use their coverage to stay healthy and to help them get better if they get sick. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is helping new health care consumers through their newly launched initiative “From Coverage to Care” (C2C). This effort has been designed to answer questions that people may have about their health coverage, and to assist them make the most of their primary and preventive care benefits. It also seeks to give health care providers the tools they need to promote patient engagement.
