Session 24 | Benefits of Provider-Owned Institutional Equivalent Special Needs Plans

Session Summary

Significant features of Medicare coverage can differ based on whether a person is enrolled in fee-for-service or a managed care plan. Attendees are likely to know and understand the needs of the Medicare beneficiaries they serve. Consequently, their understanding of different Medicare plans and Medicare's special needs plans can help them support their residents. The Institutional Equivalent Special Needs Plan (IE-SNP) is designed for people who need more care. Specifically, the IE-SNP is intended for people whose condition requires an institutional level of care but reside in the community. The presenters will provide an overview of the IE-SNP model and explain how this model enhances the provider and member experience. IE-SNPs cover benefits above the standard Medicare benefit package, offer enhanced care coordination and provide an array of additional benefits.
