“Special needs” is a broad term that describes people who face a wide range of challenges. Maybe you have a disability. Or a serious, ongoing medical problem. Having low income could also play a role. This article explains the different types of health plans for people with special needs. If it’s for you, a family member or you’re a caregiver, it’s good to know all your options.
If you’re dual-eligible, it’s likely that most of your costs will be covered.
Medicare Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are a type of Medicare Advantage Plan. All Medicare Advantage plans must cover the same Medicare services. But some Medicare SNPs are for people with specific diseases or challenges. These plans may tailor benefits, doctors and drug choices to match the needs of the groups they serve.
If you have both Medicaid and Medicare, it’s likely that most of your costs will be covered for you. If you don't have Medicaid, your exact costs may depend on the plan you choose. In general, you'll pay the basic costs of having a Medicare Advantage plan.
Please note: What dual-eligible plans you can get depends on where you live. To find a UnitedHealthcare Dual Complete® plan for you, please search plans in your state.
