County Specific D-SNP Fact Sheets for Advocates

Dual Eligibles in a number of California counties who are currently enrolled in either Medicare Advantage Plans or certain Duals Special Needs Plans (D-SNPS) may see their plans change and/or may be subject to passive enrollment in Cal MediConnect, depending on a number of factors. The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released the new Duals Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) policy last summer for beneficiaries in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties, and more recently for Orange County.

To help advocates unravel the complex policy and better advise their clients, Justice in Aging developed a series of county-specific fact sheets summarizing for advocates how beneficiaries are impacted depending on the type of Medicare Advantage plan in which a beneficiary is enrolled.

Today, we are releasing the Orange County fact sheet for the first time, and rereleasing the other county-specific fact sheets.
