A dual special needs plan is a type of health insurance plan. It’s for people who have both Medicaid and Medicare. If that’s you, you’re “dual-eligible.” (That’s just another way of saying you can have Medicaid and Medicare at the same time).
Dual special needs plans are for people who could use some extra help. That may be because of income, disabilities, age and/or health conditions. Dual plans are a type of Medicare Advantage plan. Dual special needs plans are also called DSNP for short. These names all mean the same thing.
A dual special needs plan works together with your Medicaid health plan. You’ll keep all your Medicaid benefits. Most dual plans also give you more benefits and features than you get with Original Medicare. All for a $0 plan premium.
This means you can enroll eligible in D-SNP plans all year round not just during the annual MA Open Enrollment Period..
