Pathways explain fee for service

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has published Guided Pathways to Medicare Resources for Medicare Fee-for-Service Health Care Professionals as an educational tool for fee-for-service (FFS) health care staff who are unfamiliar with the Medicare Program, as well as for those professionals looking for easy access to the many resources on the CMS website. Using a "road trip" motif, the pathways lead users through nine sections of information covering the Medicare Program, with links to further pertinent information. The pathways also provide links to other government resources pertaining to Medicare FFS items. The pathways can be accessed at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/apps/training/guidedpathways/index.html.
