SNPs are a type of Medicare Advantage plan that are paid and regulated in the same way as other Medicare Advantage plans, but have the authority to provide specialized care to serve beneficiaries who are dually-eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, have certain chronic conditions, or receive long-term care in an institutional setting such as a Skilled Nursing Facility. In addition to providing all Medicare Part A and Part B benefits, SNPs must also exceed these core benefits by providing reduced cost sharing, individualized care plans, and other tailored benefits related to mental health, social services, and wellness.
