What are Special Needs Plans?

Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are a type of Medicare Advantage Plan that provide additional coordinated, specialized care for the most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries. There are three different types of SNPs:

  • C-SNPs – for those with chronic conditions such as dementia, diabetes or stroke
  • D-SNPs – for those who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid (dual eligible) and generally live in the community.
  • I-SNPs – for those who are in institutions such as nursing homes, or who are eligible for institutional care
