Dual-eligible Special Needs plans

Did you know that if you have Medicare Parts A and B and have full Medicaid, you are considered “dually eligible.”

At VIA, we understand how it can be confusing as to what Medicare covers and what Medicaid covers.  If you are dually eligible, you may not be getting all of the benefits, care and services for which you are eligible.

We offer Medicare Advantage plans that are tailor made for those who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.


What is a dual-eligible plan?

It’s a private insurance plan with a Medicare contract authorized under Medicare Part C.  It provides benefits greater than or equal to those of Medicare Parts A and B, sometime at little to no extra cost.

What a dual-eligible plan  is not:  A type of Medicare supplement.


What is a Medicare Advantage Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (DSNP)?

It’s a Medicare Advantage plan that offers additional benefits for you which original Medicare Parts A and B don’t offer.

If you are dually eligible, our DSNP plans may offer you these additional benefits:

  • Dental (including dentures)
  • Vision and transportation benefits
  • Hearing aids
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Home visit by health care specialist
  • Maximum out-of-pocket spending limit
  • Zero copayments and 0 percent coinsurance on many services
