• task force members who will actively disseminate NMEP materials and communicate information about the program; and
  • educational affiliates, which will be organizations and agencies that distribute Medicare+Choice information to their members or clients.

Over the long-term, HCFA will be working closely with the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research and other groups to develop a common consumer information framework. Ideally, this collaborative effort will produce a standardized information framework that will enable health care consumers across the age spectrum to look at information in the same standardized format with identical terms and definitions. The end result of this effort will be an information framework that does not change as an individual moves from employer-based health care into Medicare.
