Section 508 Compliance. Simplified.
It’s challenging to be competitive in the complex world of Medicare and Medicaid. It’s even more challenging to do so while being efficient and effective.

CMS Medicare Marketing Guidelines require that all MA plans and Part D sponsors have websites that are compliant with web-based technology and information standards for people with disabilities, as specified in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. These guidelines extend to PDF files published to your website. Though CMS publishes best practices for ensuring Word and PDF documents meet Section 508 standards, it remains a tedious and complex process. But with Cody’s single-source offering, there’s no reason you can’t simplify it.
Cody has discovered that many health plans believe they are Section 508 compliant, when they are not. Read our blog to find out – ARE YOUR MATERIALS SECTION 508 COMPLIANT?
