SNPs include care coordination services and tailor their benefits, provider choices, and list of covered drugs (formularies) to best meet the specific needs of the groups they serve.
SNPs are either HMO or PPO plan types, and cover the same Medicare Part A and Part B benefits that all Medicare Advantage Plans cover. However, SNPs might also cover extra services for the special groups they serve. For example, if you have a severe condition, like cancer or congestive heart failure, and you need a hospital stay, an SNP may cover extra days in the hospital. You can only stay enrolled in an SNP if you continue to meet the special conditions of the plan.
