Duals Special Needs Plans—What Advocates Need to Know

This webinar took place on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET

Since 2020, enrollment in Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs) has doubled. Today, over five million individuals eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid are enrolled in these Medicare Advantage plans, and enrollment is expected to continue rising. An increasing number of states are focusing on D-SNPs as a primary vehicle for integrating care and improving coordination of services for their dual eligible populations. Yet many advocates know little about what D-SNPs are, what makes them unique, and how they operate.

Join Justice in Aging for this webinar, D-SNPs: What Advocates Need to Know. We will provide an overview of our updated issue brief covering basic information about D-SNPs, their structure, and how they are regulated. We will also identify specific areas where advocates can engage with their states to ensure that D-SNPs work effectively to coordinate care and benefits for dual eligibles, including strategies for centering equity from the outset in the design of D-SNPs.

Who Should Participate:
State-based advocates working with older adults and people with disabilities enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid.

Rachel Gershon, Senior Attorney
Tiffany Huyenh-Cho, Director of California Medicare & Medicaid Advocacy
