Special Needs Plans

Health care specially tailored for your needs.

Some health conditions require special care and attention. Medicare offers a plan that is designed for certain chronic health conditions. If you have a chronic condition like diabetes, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), you may be eligible to receive specially tailored care at a lower cost with Medicare’s Chronic Condition Special Needs Plan, or C-SNP. Coupled with HealthCare Partners’ team of local specialists, a C-SNP may be the right choice for you and your health.

What is a Chronic Special Needs Plan (C-SNP)?

C-SNPs are a type of Medicare Advantage plan designed to provide specialized care for certain chronic health conditions. Benefits include access to qualified specialists, a greater choice of providers, clinical case management programs, specific nutrition recommendations, and a care support team to help keep you on track with your treatment.

C-SNPs also feature benefits designed to help you save money on the care necessary to manage your chronic condition. This includes coverage for your prescription drugs.

Some C-SNPs also include specific care coordination services. These services aim to give you a better understanding of your condition, help you manage it more effectively, and help improve your quality of life.

C-SNPs are only available to patients who have a qualifying disease or chronic illness, such as:

  • Chronic Heart Disorders
  • Chronic Heart Failure
  • Diabetes
  • End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
  • Chronic Lung Disorders (COPD)
