Medicare & Parkinson’s: What You Need to Know
Almost 90% of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) are covered by Medicare. As a disease that impacts both motor and non-motor symptoms, Parkinson’s can affect all aspects of a person’s life. Whether you are approaching 65 or already there, navigating Medicare and understanding what it means for managing your Parkinson’s disease can be overwhelming.
Learn about Medicare and your coverage options, what is “typically” paid for by Medicare and what to think about budgeting for, how to enroll, where you can find additional resources and more.
For a person with Parkinson’s, understand where Medicare may matter most including coverage for visits with your doctors, PD related medications, physical therapy and other rehabilitation services, in-home care, durable medical equipment, PD related surgeries and more.
Led by Lance Wilson, Social Worker at Jefferson Health Comprehensive Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center and Tricia Sandiego, Senior Advisor at AARP, this webinar offers educational resources, tools and advice to help guide your journey and support you in living the best life with PD.
