UnitedHealthcare: JarvisWRAP for February 20

February 20, 2024
UnitedHealthcare

More consumers are choosing UnitedHealthcare C-SNP

Nationally, 52% of Medicare beneficiaries* ages 65-74 manage three or more chronic conditions according to America’s Health Rankings 2023 Senior Report. To better support these consumers, UnitedHealthcare offers Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans (C-SNP) designed specifically for Medicare eligibles with diabetes, chronic heart failure, and/or cardiovascular disorders. These plans include benefits tailored to those with the qualifying conditions, some of which include:

  • $25 or less for insulin for the majority of C-SNP members ($0 on some C-SNPs in California and Florida)
  • $0 diabetic supplies through Optum Home Delivery
  • Their own formulary with preferred tiering for 23 prescriptions that treat the conditions required for C-SNP enrollment
  • Lower medical copays

UnitedHealthcare also offers some C-SNPs with benefits which are structured to be attractive to the full dual eligible Medicaid population; however, Medicaid is NOT required to enroll.

Members with qualifying chronic conditions may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) based on their qualifying condition and current plan. This is a great opportunity to grow your book of business during SEP!

Check out the Medicare Product Portal to learn more about the UnitedHealthcare C-SNPs available in your market. There’s also a Job Aid, which is found on Learning Lab > Content Library > Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans Course (download by clicking on 'Additional References').

Reminder: sales of these plans require the SNP certification. Watch for a new C-SNP training to join in March or contact your local market leader if you'd like to learn more. There are also self-study resources available for all Election Periods. The Election Period Booklet can be accessed on the navigation bar across the top of Learning Lab or in the Enrollment Handbook on: Learning Lab > Content Library > Enrollment and Election Periods Course.

*Limited to Medicare beneficiaries who were enrolled in the fee-for-service program.

Benefits, features and/or devices vary by plan/area. Limitations, exclusions and/or network restrictions may apply.

Thousands of covered products to support healthy living

The UnitedHealthcare over-the-counter (OTC) benefit gives members enrolled in eligible Medicare Advantage, Dual Special Needs (D-SNP) and Chronic Special Needs (C-SNP) plans the power to purchase everyday health care items that support their well-being. Members can use their credit toward thousands of OTC products, with access to over 55 thousand retail locations. Additionally, for members enrolled in a D-SNP or select C-SNP plan, the benefit offers the unique opportunity to also use credits for purchasing healthy foods.

Help members get the most out of their Medicare Advantage plan

You can help members live healthier lifestyles by reminding them to take advantage of the benefits their Medicare Advantage plan may include. Don’t let important benefits like virtual medical care or mental health services get overlooked. Virtual medical care may provide more convenient access to providers for mild sicknesses, like the sniffles. Virtual mental health services may also help members get back to feeling like themselves or cope with challenging life circumstances.  

Members can learn more about these and other benefits their plan offers by referring to the UnitedHealthcare® app or the member website.

Benefits, features and/or devices vary by plan/area. Limitations, exclusions and/or network restrictions may apply. Virtual visits may require video-enabled smartphone or other device. Not for use in emergencies. Not all network providers offer virtual care
