If you suffer from chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes and are eligible for Medicare. You should consider enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plus special-needs plan. Special needs plans are created so that their benefits will provide a list of covered drugs and provider choices that will meet the needs of those with certain chronic conditions. There are three types of special needs plans. One is for seniors living in nursing homes and other institutionalized settings. The second one is duel eligible, which mean seniors are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. The third is coverage for seniors with chronic diseases. The advantage of the special needs plan is they are familiar with your chronic condition and will be able to match you with health care providers who can provide you with the best care.
