Medical Consumer Protection

Medicare acknowledges Consumer Protection Week by publishing a table of guidelines to help medical consumers make important choices about finances, health, privacy, and more, in their “Five Ways to Become an Informed Medical Consumer” post on the official Medicare Blog.  Each of the Five Ways links to in-depth information.  Find the post at http://blog.medicare.gov/2016/03/07/informed-medicare-consumer/ .

Another effort to increase protections for medical consumers is the CDC Foundation Safe Injection Practices Coalition’s “One and Only Campaign,” using the motto “One Needle, One Syringe, Only One Time.”  You can find a great deal more information about this campaign at http://www.oneandonlycampaign.org/ .
