Medicare Rights University Launched by Medicare Rights Center

A 'one-of-a-kind' online curriculum for health care and insurance professionals

Jan. 29, 2014 - The Medicare Rights Center today announced the launch of Medicare Rights University (MRU), a web-based curriculum designed to empower any professional to better help their own clients, patients, employees, retirees, and others navigate a multitude of Medicare questions.

Building on Medicare Rights’ 25 years of health care counseling and educational expertise, MRU offers a 17-course, video-based Core Curriculum complete with a self-assessment tool, in-depth and user-friendly Medicare content, quizzes to test knowledge, and downloadable materials.

“Every year Medicare Rights reaches more than one million people through trainings, presentations, and print and online resources,” said Joe Baker, Medicare Rights’ President. “Medicare Rights University is a competitive product suited to the needs of diverse health care and insurance professionals, for use in teaching themselves, training their colleagues, and helping their clients navigate the many nuances of Medicare.”

MRU subscribers can:

  >> Learn online, anytime, and review key concepts as needed.

  >> Stay up-to-date on the changing Medicare program.

  >> Gain access to exclusive materials developed by an expert consumer service nonprofit organization.

  >> Train staff without having to devote time to developing new content.

MRU is structured as a four-level Core Curriculum, with four to five video-based courses in each level designed to build on information learned as users progress through each level. Advanced courses feature in-depth case studies to help users assist others in real-life situations. A Special Topics portion of MRU addresses subjects not covered in the Core Curriculum, such as Medicare Fall Open Enrollment and Medicare and health reform. A free assessment places users into the appropriate course and level, and quizzes and downloadable materials accompanying each course test subscribers’ knowledge.

Courses start at $50 each, with group rates available.

MRU is available today. To learn more, please visit

Medicare Rights Center, based in New York, is a national, nonprofit consumer service organization that works to ensure access to affordable health care for older adults and people with disabilities through counseling and advocacy, educational programs, and public policy initiatives.

Financial Relief for Volkswagen Diesel Owners

You may be eligible for money damages if you owned or leased one of these VW, Porsche or Audi vehicles.

In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.

They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.

If you owned or leased one of these vehicles, contact us now.
