Changes in 2022
Senior Care Plus just started offering the Extensive Duels plan this year. As I mentioned above, this is for people that have Medicaid and Medicare. This is called being duel eligible.
This is great news if you have both Medicare and Medicaid and you want to use Renown doctors. This plan provides coverage for Renown physicians while also giving you tons of benefits that aren’t normally covered by Medicaid.
Those benefits include:
- Over The Counter Allowance
- And tons of other great additions
These extra benefits can be a huge help if you have Medicaid and if you aren’t currently getting these benefits, you should call our office right away. We might be able to help you get signed up.

How to Enroll
Most people enrolled in Medicare Advantage Plans shop for new coverage each year during the Annual Enrollment Period.
The Annual Enrollment Period starts on October 15th and ends on December 7th.
If you apply for coverage during this time period, your new plan should start on January 1st. Based on your situation, you may qualify for Medicare mid-year. Mid-year Medicare Enrollments usually require a Special Enrollment Period.
