You can have both Medicare and Medicaid at the same time
Some people have both Medicare and Medicaid. If this is you, you could be “dual eligible.” That’s where dual special needs plans come in. Dual special needs plans work together with an individual’s Medicaid plan and cover eligible doctor visits, hospital stays and prescription drugs. If you have Medicare and Medicaid, chances are you could qualify for a dual plan.
Dual plans offer money-saving extra benefits at no additional cost
Dual plans go beyond Medicaid or Original Medicare alone. You’ll still get to keep your Medicaid benefits plus you will have the additional features of a dual special needs plan. And with a dual plan, you could be eligible for many more money-saving extra benefits than Original Medicare offers at no additional cost.
These extra benefits may include:
- Dental Care
- Eye exams, plus eyewear allowances
- Hearing exams, plus hearing device allowances
- Rides to health care visits and the pharmacy
- Allowances to buy hundreds of over-the-counter health-related products
As an added bonus, plan-qualifying, dual eligible individuals can usually enroll for no monthly premium, making a dual special needs plan a low-cost, high-value option.
