Special Needs Plans, or SNPs, provide benefits and services to people that have specific health care needs or limited incomes. These plans are tailored to meet the specific needs of their members. Everything from benefits to provider choices, to covered drugs, are all chosen with great care to ensure the best outcomes for plan participants.
If you are above age 65 and have certain health conditions or limited finances, you may be qualified for both federal and state public health insurance. Nearly 12 million Americans fall into this category, so if you’re one of them, don’t wait to enroll in a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP). These private health plans coordinate care and benefits across Medicare, a federal program, and Medicaid, a state-level program.
