Chronic Special Needs Plans
Are you suffering from a chronic, debilitating condition with progressively higher treatment costs? If so, you could qualify for a Chronic Special Needs Plan (C-SNP)! C-SNPs can help you get reduced costs for treatments specific to your illness.
But, what counts as a chronic condition? It’s anything you have that’s disabling and/or life-threatening, with a high chance of hospitalization. A chronic condition could be something like cancer, an autoimmune disorder, schizophrenia, HIV, stroke, ALS, or diabetes. The list is very long and diverse.
What this means is that you can get a policy where the coverage targets the condition that affects you the most. But like any Medicare Advantage plan, its coverage is vast!
You Get THESE Covered
Because of the Chronic Special Needs Plan being a type of Medicare Advantage plan, it covers everything that Original Medicare does, in addition to having a prescription drug plan, and possibly other additional coverage benefits not offered by Original Medicare.
Since your condition is severe, this plan will help you more than any other. Your hospital bills, exams, screenings, medical equipment, and medications are among the many costs your Chronic Special Needs Plan will cover. You will likely incur these expenses on a frequent basis, which is why it’s strongly encouraged that you get a Medicare plan with high savings!
