A New Face for the CMS Website12.06.2011
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has expanded and enhanced its online presence by debuting a new look and feel for CMS.gov, and launching a brand-new site for the Medicaid program, Medicaid.gov. CMS says these changes come in response to what users have said they wanted to be able to do on the site.
Here’s what you’ll find on the new CMS and Medicaid sites:
- A significantly improved search engine that gets you to the information you’re looking for, fast.
- More in-depth information about what CMS is doing to implement the Affordable Care Act and other new initiatives, and details about how you can apply for new programs.
- Up-to-date, real-time updates that reflect important developments and initiatives happening with CMS programs.
- Medicaid program information that’s readily available, easy to find, and easy to use.
- Easy-to-access links to Healthcare.gov, which will continue to be the primary site for consumer information.
While CMS has moved content around to make it easier to find, you shouldn’t lose access to any of the current Medicare and Medicaid information you rely on now. They’re launching an archive version of each of the websites so that historic information can remain online without adding clutter to their primary sites.
