Medicare Advantage Falls Prevention Webinar: Sustainability for Care Innovations

September 22, 2017 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency department for a fall-

related injury. Every 29 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Each year, 27,000

older adults die from falls. More than $31 billion is spent in Medicare costs related to

falls each year.

Medicare Advantage partners with community-based organizations to reduce falls risk

through evidence-based programs and interventions.

Please join Better Medicare Alliance for Falls Prevention Day to learn more about falls

prevention programs for seniors, community partnerships, and innovations in Medicare

Advantage to sustain falls prevention programs.
