What is D-SNP?

A Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) is a Medicare Advantage coordinated care plan specifically designed to provide targeted care to individuals that are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. MLTSS health plans are required to obtain D-SNP certification and to utilize both their MLTSS plan and the D-SNP to coordinate dually eligible enrollees’ Medicare and Medicaid benefits.
