Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plan

Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is a type of policy that allows beneficiaries to add additional areas of coverage into their policy. This is an excellent option for those that are wanting dental, vision, or hearing coverage that wouldn’t otherwise be included in an Original Medicare plan.

Special Needs Plans

Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are included within Part C. They are a specific type of policy that is written specifically for those with a certain diagnosis. Because this type of policy is so specific, it means that beneficiaries have access to services and professionals that are there directly for them. Enrolling in a SNP is one of the best ways to save money and gain access to a wide range of medical services.

Many people that are looking into Medicare enrollment also have questions about Medicaid. One of the most asked questions is whether or not it’s possible to be simultaneously enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid.

It is entirely possible to be enrolled in a Medicare SNP and also a Medicaid policy. This can be done through a special type of policy called a Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNPs).

Being enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid means that you’ll have coverage from two different health insurance entities. This is a great way to get expanded coverage and have as many resources as possible available to you. Choosing to enroll in a D-SNP is a great option if you do qualify for it.

It can be confusing to look at all of the different insurance options. If you’re feeling stuck in the selection process, know that feeling that way is completely normal. It can help to research and speak with a professional that can point you in the right insurance direction.
