A Dual Special Needs Plan (DSNP) eligibility is based on having both Medicaid and Medicare together. You must have both Medicare Part A and Part B and full Medicaid active at the time you are approved for the DSNP. You must also maintain your Medicaid level and your Original Medicare while enrolled in the DSNP. Therefore, a Dual Special Needs Plan will not cause you to lose Medicaid because you must have and maintain your Medicaid level to continue to be eligible to stay in the DSNP. If at any point you lose your Medicaid because of an income increase or any other reason ordained by your state Medicaid department, you will receive notification by your Dual Special Needs Plan that it will end soon. When this happens, you will need to speak with us again to find other coverage.
