Morrison Foerster Releases Helping Handbook for Those Affected by Northern California Wildfires
The lives of thousands of people in Northern California have been upended by the wildfires that have damaged and destroyed homes, businesses, documents and lives. As those affected by the fire begin to chart a way forward, they, and the agencies that help them, desperately need information on a wide variety of topics that touch on the law.
Responding to this need, Morrison & Foerster has produced the 2017 Northern California Wildfires Helping Handbook. The Handbook gathers in one place up-to-date, practical information on subjects that include emergency housing; government benefits; insurance; FEMA assistance; replacement of lost documents; fraud prevention and many others.
Medicare has special rules for how it covers hospice care. Get five key facts about this benefit in a new consumer tip sheet (available in English and Spanish) developed for us by the Medicare Rights Center (MRC). MRC has created an accompanying PowerPoint that counselors can use to train staff/volunteers and consumers on the hospice benefit.
