It is possible to be eligible and enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid at the same time. If you qualify for both, you are what is called dual-eligible. There are special Medicare Advantage programs available for those enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid called D-SNPs.

Medicare D-SNPs are plans specifically designed for dual eligibles. D-SNPs tailor their benefits, provider choices, and drug formularies to best meet the needs of dual eligibles. There are several Medicaid eligibility categories, and not all D-SNPs cover all categories, so it’s important to talk with your Medicare agent at %location_locationName% to verify your eligibility.

In general, D-SNP plans include benefits above and beyond those provided by Medicaid and Medicare. These extra benefits may include:

  • Dental care
  • Eye exams and eyewear
  • Hearing exams and hearing devices
  • Transportation to the doctor or pharmacy
  • Credits to buy over the counter health-related products

These D-SNP plans usually have no monthly premium, making them a low-cost choice too.
