If you qualify for or get Medicare

Main Content

You can choose a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) for your Medicare health coverage. A D-SNP is a Medicare Advantage plan. It works with your Medicaid health plan. If you choose a D-SNP run by the same health plan as your Medicaid health plan, it will coordinate your Medicaid and Medicare health benefits.

If you are enrolled in a D-SNP, you will have no premiums or co-pays for doctor or specialist visits. You may have co-pays for prescription drugs.

To learn more, read the Medicare - Dual Special Needs Plan pamphlet.

To find a D-SNP in your area:

  • Call 1-800 MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) (TTY: 1-877-486-2048).
  • Or go to www.medicare.gov/find-a-plan. If you don’t have a computer, your local library or senior center may be able to help you access the Medicare website.

If you will be eligible for Medicare soon, learn about your choices at Medicare letters.
