Medicare and Medicaid Translations
Providing highly-accurate, culturally sensitive Medicare and Medicaid translations and interpreting services for non-native English speaking patients.
Medicare and Medicaid Translation’s Role in American Healthcare
Medicare and Medicaid Translations are essential to effectively communicate with patients enrolled in American government health services. Medicare and Medicaid are two United States health insurance programs run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Medicare is an insurance program primarily for Americans over the age of 65, but it also covers children with disabilities and Americans with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), while Medicaid is an assistance program for low-income Americans.
According to United States law, healthcare providers that receive federal funds to offer Medicare and Medicaid services must provide language access services for Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients. Importantly, miscommunication between healthcare providers and LEP patients can result in the patient experiencing adverse health events, and not receiving appropriate, patient-centric care. To enable LEP patients to make informed choices about their care, as well as ensure legal compliance, highly accurate translation and interpretation services are vital. CSOFT Health Sciences works with healthcare providers that accept Medicare and Medicaid to effectively care for LEP patients and adhere to legal guidelines by providing high-quality and technically accurate translation and interpretation services across 250+ languages.
Interpretation Services for Medicare and Medicaid Patients
The doctor-patient relationship is an essential caregiving tool, and essential for Medicare and Medicaid recipients to receive patient-centric care. Professional, high-quality, and accurate medical interpretation is critical to ensure mutual understanding between LEP patients using Medicare or Medicaid and healthcare providers; doing so also enables LEP patients and their families to make informed treatment decisions in regard to their health. CSOFT Health Science’s team of medical interpreters provides high-quality, simple, quick, and cost effective over-the-phone interpretation (OPI), video-remote interpretation (RMI), and in-person medical interpretation solutions in 100+ languages, allowing healthcare providers, from physicians and nurses to palliative care coordinators and clinical social workers, to give the highest quality care to LEP patients.

Healthcare Document Translation Services
To effectively care for LEP patients, healthcare providers need to access high-quality translations of documents such as medical history records, hospital consent to treatment forms, admission policies, patient rights and responsibilities, and advance directives and procedures. Medicare and Medicaid patients require document translation services across a range of medical specialties and therapeutic areas:
Providing highly-accurate and high-quality translations of these documents is essential for delivering equal healthcare access for LEP patients and ensuring informed consent for treatment.
With a large network of subject matter experts and over 10,000 in-country native linguists, CSOFT Health Sciences provides accurate and high-quality translation for a variety of patient documentation, from informed consent forms and patient information sheets to treatment explanations and medication directions.

Medicare and Medicaid Patients and Clinical Trials
Clinical Trial Translations are essential to engage LEP Medicare and Medicaid patients in medical research. From clinical trials on implantable medical devices, like pacemakers and artificial joints, to pharmaceuticals for cancer and neurodegenerative diseases and in vitro diagnostic devices such as blood glucose monitoring, effective communication with Medicare patients in particular can boost enrollment and lead industry sponsors to successful trial endpoints.
CSOFT Health Sciences accurately translates patient recruitment and retainment materials, as well as clinical trial documents from the first stages of drug development to clinical study reports and through pharmacovigilance.
