Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans (SNPs)

Dual-eligible beneficiaries are people who are entitled to Medicaid benefits as well as Medicare health coverage. People with dual eligibility may be able to enroll in what's called a Dual-Eligible Medicare Special Needs Plan (D-SNP)

Depending on your unique level of eligibility, a Medicare Special Needs Plan can help cover some or nearly all of your health care costs, include Medicare deductibles, copays, coinsurance and other costs. Learn more about Medicare D-SNPs and find out if there are plans available where you live that can help cover your health care costs.
