As a licensed Medicare agent, you know that Special Needs Plans (SNPs) have the potential to create year-round selling opportunities outside of AEP and OEP. This includes Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs) for those who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. On May 11, 2023, the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency will end, creating a unique situation for D-SNP enrollees who may no longer qualify for Medicaid.
The COVID-19 public health emergency may be ending soon. When this happens, many people are likely to lose their Medicaid coverage. For millions of dually eligible Medicare enrollees, this could mean new renewal requirements and may necessitate a plan switch.
