about acentra health

As a Beneficiary and Family Centered Care Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO), Acentra Health provides free services to people with Medicare (including Medicare Advantage), as well as their families and representatives, that help with these types of questions:

  • Were you (or a family member) admitted to the hospital and are being discharged but aren’t ready to go home?
  • Are your Medicare skilled services – such as physical therapy – ending too soon?
  • What can you do if you are concerned about the quality of care you received from your hospital, doctors, or others?
  • Do you need a concern about your medical care taken care of right away?

about the podcast

One way you can learn more about these free services, as well as other healthcare topics, is by tuning in to Acentra Health's new podcast: Aging Health Matters.

Podcasts are audio files that you can download or listen to on the Internet. Each audio recording is called a podcast episode.

Listeners will get tips that can help improve their healthcare journeys. Your podcast host - Acentra Health - is joined by guests to have open conversations that are aimed at making life a little bit easier.
