Are You a Returning Shopper?

Do you have both Medicare and Medicaid?

You may be eligible for extra benefits and services with a Medicare Advantage (Part C) HMO D-SNP plan from Florida Blue Medicare.

Understanding Medicare and Medicaid

  • Medicare is a national health insurance program managed by the federal government for people 65 and older, and people with a qualifying disability.

  • Medicaid is a health insurance program funded jointly by both the state and federal government for individuals, families and children with limited income and resources.

What is a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP)?

A Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) is a specific Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan designed for individuals who are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. D-SNP provides a convenient way to manage healthcare coverage and offers extra benefits and more services than the standard coverage in Medicaid and Original Medicare (Parts A & B). 

We can help you save money on your Medicare costs!
