The Medicare Learning Network® (MLN®) is your destination for educational information for Medicare fee-for-service providers. The MLN® is the brand name for official Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) national provider education products designed to promote national consistency of Medicare provider information. Most importantly, the MLN® is here to help you!
How can I benefit from MLN® products?
CMS understands the uncertainty you are often faced with when it comes to keeping up with changes in Medicare policy. The MLN® aims to solve that problem by providing you with a variety of training and educational materials developed in plain language with actionable tips to use in your day-to-day operations.
One example of the benefits of utilizing the MLN® resources and products is they give Medicare fee-for-service health care professionals information on coverage, coding, billing, reimbursement, and claim filing procedures for Medicare-covered services, such as preventive services and screenings, including preventive services via telehealth.
The MLN® Catalog of Products contains all MLN® products currently available to health care providers and is available in print as well as an online electronic version. MLN® products include articles, educational tools, brochures, fact sheets, training guides, and web resources most of which can be viewed and/or downloaded directly from the online version of the catalog. Products that are available in hard copy only, including CD ROMs and DVDs, may be ordered from the MLN® Product Ordering page on the CMS website. All MLN® educational and informational products are offered free of charge.
MLN® Provider Minute videos
The MLN® provider minute videos contain Medicare guidance on an array of topics to assist providers with proper billing, coding and documentation requirements.
Medicare Quarterly Provider Compliance Newsletter
MLN® has developed an educational tool, the Medicare Quarterly Provider Compliance Newsletter, to advise physicians, suppliers, and other fee-for-service providers about how to avoid common billing errors and other erroneous activities when dealing with the Medicare Program. The newsletter is issued on a quarterly basis and highlights the “top” issues of that particular quarter as identified through a variety of sources.
