Dual special needs plans (also called "dual" plans) are for people who get both Medicaid and Medicare. Dual plans cover doctor visits, hospital stays and prescription drugs. They offer more benefits and extras than Original Medicare. You'll keep all your Medicaid benefits too.
Medicaid is health insurance for people with low incomes. You might be able to get Medicaid if you're pregnant, have children or live with a disability. In some cases, other adults also may qualify. Costs to you are low and based on your ability to pay. It's important to know that Medicaid rules and coverage differ from state to state.
More people now qualify for Heritage Health and Heritage Health Adult Expansion (Medicaid). See if you can too. No copays for covered services.

Losing weight does not have to be hard. Getting more exercise is one of the best ways. Try to get 60 minutes or more of exercise every day. It doesn’t have to mean doing hard exercises or going to the gym every day. Just move your body. Here are some ideas:
Move! Dancing to your favorite tunes can help you burn more than 300 calories an hour.
If you do play video games, play interactive ones where you have to move. You don’t even have to leave the house to move – try exercises like jumping jacks, marching in place, going up and down stairs, push-ups or sit-ups at home.
Walk! Take a walk with a friend outside. Walk your dog or your neighbor’s dog, or walk your cat! Instead of driving, walk or bike to school or a friend’s house.
Clean! Vacuum your room. Wash the car. Mow the lawn. Your parents will be happy, and it’s another chance for you to get more exercise, and maybe even have some fun.
Unplug! Limit your time watching TV or using your smartphone, computer or other device. Keep screen time to less than two hours a day. When you do watch TV or use your phone – try marching in place or exercising while you watch/play.
When you're stressed, your body knows it. Your heart starts pounding and your muscles tense. Everyone has stress in their life now and then. But chronic stress can have negative effects on both your physical and your mental health.
It can affect:
Digestion. Stress slows the release of stomach acid and causes the colon to work faster. This can result in stomachaches or diarrhea.
Heart rate and blood vessels. Your heart rate, blood pressure and cholesterol may increase. This raises your risk for
heart attacks and strokes.
Immune system. Stress makes wounds heal slower. You’re also more likely to get colds and infections.
Weight. Stress makes you crave fats and carbohydrates. If you gain weight in your abdominal area, you’re at greater
risk for heart disease and diabetes.
Mental health. Stress makes you tense and anxious. This can lead to depression, headaches or other problems such as trouble sleeping.
Regain your balance. If stress has taken over your life, here are some ideas to regain control:
Make time for regular exercise. Check with your doctor to see what types of exercise are right for you.
If your stress is still an issue, talk with your doctor. He or she can recommend someone who can help you find other ways to manage your stress.

Healthy Weight. Healthy You.
When you eat more calories than you use, your body stores the extra calories as fat. A few extra pounds are not bad for most people, but too many extra pounds and too much body fat can be bad for your health.* Doctors call this being “overweight” or “obese.”
Doctors use a measurement called body mass index (BMI), using your height and your weight to determine how much body fat you have. The best way to stay at a healthy weight or to lose weight is to make good food choices. Here are some easy ways to do that every day:
