What Is a Dual Special Needs Plan (DSNP)? +
DSNPs are provided by certain health insurance carriers through a Medicare Advantage Plan. Medicare Advantage Plans are plans offered by private health insurance companies approved by the federal government. This plan combines Medicare benefits, including doctor and hospital coverage and, in most cases, Part D prescription drug coverage. They may also offer additional benefits beyond what is available with an original Medicare plan, such as dental, vision or hearing coverage. By combining with a Medicare Advantage plan, a DSNP can use the carriers’ network of providers rather than a state Medicaid list of providers, and you can receive various additional benefit levels, such as coverage for vision, hearing and transportation costs.
