Extra Care, Resources and Support for You
Do you have both Medicare and Medicaid? You likely qualify for a Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP), a plan that gives you extra coverage you won’t receive with Original Medicare. For example, we have D-SNPs that include money for over-the-counter health items, and dental, vision and prescription drug coverage.
Am I Eligible for a D-SNP?
You are eligible for a D-SNP when you have both Medicare, a federal government program, and Medicaid, a state-run service. You can learn more about Medicare and Medicaid if you’re not sure which program you qualify for.
If you have both of these programs and we offer the plan where you live, exploring the extra coverage you could have is worth it – it could even be life-changing.
Benefits in Dual-Eligible Medicare Plans
Our D-SNPs give you dental, vision, hearing and prescription drug coverage. Make sure to check your area for specific coverage, as it can vary from state to state. But typically, a routine teeth cleaning or eye exam and preventive care screenings won’t cost you anything.
