The Jimmo webpage and other elements of the Corrective Action Plan should help ensure that the Jimmo Settlement is implemented correctly and that it opens doors to Medicare coverage and necessary care for beneficiaries who require maintenance care, including people with long-term, progressive, or debilitating conditions. The study showed that participation in the CCM program was associated with a lower growth in total costs to Medicare than the comparison group.

    Approximately 66 percent of the total health care spending is associated with care for the over one in four Americans with MCC. Indeed, the new education and Jimmo webpage are important because many health care providers still operate under this misconception, leading beneficiaries to be wrongly denied needed services such as physical and occupational therapy.
