Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans (SNPs) In New York With Empire

Medicare Advantage SNPs are plans for people living with certain medical conditions or those with low income. They include Medicare Parts A, B, and D (prescription drug coverage) and other coverage targeted for your needs.

Special Needs Plans With Empire

 

Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are Medicare Advantage plans  for people with limited income or certain conditions or diseases. It can be hard to have a condition that requires extra health care, and just as hard to cover health costs on a fixed or low income.

 

Here are some ways a Medicare Special Needs Plan may be able to help:

 

 Extra support from a special team of care providers 

 Prescription drug coverage

 Rides to health-related appointments

 Free healthy meals

 Medicare Part B premium coverage

 SilverSneakers® fitness membership 

 

This list does not include all benefits that come with Special Needs Plans. Coverage changes based on where you live.

 

If you don’t qualify for a SNP, our Medicare Advantage HMO plans  and Medicare Advantage PPO plans  may be right for you. Take a look to see what’s available in your area.

Which Special Needs Plan Fits You?

Dual-Eligible SNP (D-SNP)

A D-SNP offers extra support for people who have both Medicare and Medicaid.

 

You need to be 65 or older or have certain health conditions to qualify for Medicare. Medicaid is based on your income level instead of your age. If your income qualifies you for assistance, you can be younger than 65.

 

Our D-SNPs include:

 

  • Vision coverage
  • Dental coverage
  • Prescription drug coverage

 

Learn more about our D-SNPs and their benefits.

Chronic Condition SNP (C-SNP)

A C-SNP offers extra support and care for people living with:

 

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease or chronic heart failure
  • Lung disease
  • End-stage renal disease

 

Most of our Medicare Advantage C-SNPs also include:

 

  • Prescription drug coverage 
  • $0 or low monthly premiums
  • $0 deductibles
  • Additional benefits tailored for your healthcare needs

 

Learn more about our C-SNPs and their benefits.

Institutional SNP (I-SNP)

 

Some people who need an institutional level of care may qualify for an Institutional SNP (I-SNP).

Special Enrollment Period For SNPs

 

If your health needs or living situation change, you may need to change your Medicare Advantage plan. The Special Enrollment Period is a span of time when you can enroll in a new plan if your health needs or living situation changed.

 

For example, if you are newly diagnosed with diabetes or a heart condition, you may qualify for a Special Needs Plan. You can use the Special Enrollment Period to switch your plan.
