Coordinated Medicare/Medicaid Benefits
Did you know that you may qualify for a plan that integrates your Medicare and Medicaid benefits through a single entity?
Are You Eligible?
If you are 21 years of age or older, eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, you are considered dual-eligible. Additionally, if you experience significant health or financial risks and require more attention and support to help you reach your health goals you would qualify for dual coverage.
What is a Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan?
The Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan is a program created to manage Medicare benefits as well as most Medicaid benefits, in addition to some supplemental services.
Medicare is the primary payer for people with dual eligibility. Medicaid coverage picks up the costs that Medicare may not cover, such as deductibles and coinsurance. Medicaid might also cover long-term nursing home expenses, personal in-home care and other supportive services not covered by Medicare.
Why Coordinated Care?
Coordinated care combines the coverage of Medicare and Medicaid benefits through a single source, which means your healthcare decisions are based on your specific needs.
