Medicare Special Needs Plans

A Medicare Special Needs Plan (SNP) is a type of Medicare Advantage Plan designed for people with certain chronic diseases and conditions or who have specialized needs (such as people who have both Medicare and Medicaid, or people who live in certain institutions). Medicare SNPs provide their members with all Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance), Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) services, and Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D). Medicare SNPs were created to give certain groups of people better access to Medicare managed care.
