Medicare/Medi-Cal Plans:

Medicare/Medi-Cal Plans are Special Needs Plans (SNPs) for people with both Medicare and Medi-Cal. Medicare SNPs are a type of Medicare Advantage Plan. Medicare SNPs limit membership to people with specific diseases or characteristics, and tailor their benefits, provider choices, and drug formularies to best meet the specific needs of the groups they serve.

Medicare/Medi-Cal are approved by Medicare and managed by private insurance companies. When you join a Medicare/Medi-Cal plan, you get all your Medicare hospital, medical health care services, and prescription drug coverage through that plan.

Medicare/Medi-Cal plans also provide additional services like dental, hearing aids and medical transportation. The will still cover emergency or urgently needed care, even if you’re out of the plan’s service area.
