Medica HealthCare Dual Eligible SNP plans are intended for consumers eligible for Medicare & Medicaid benefits.

  • Medica HealthCare Plans MedicareMax Plus (HMO SNP)

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans have a defined network of contracted local physicians and hospitals to provide member care. Generally, members must use these care providers to receive benefits for covered services, except in emergencies. The Medica Healthcare HMO plans require referrals for specialty care.

Medica HealthCare is insured through UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company or one of its affiliated companies, a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract and a contract with the State Medicaid Program. Enrollment in the plan depends on the plan’s contract renewal with Medicare. This plan is available to anyone who has both Medical Assistance from the State and Medicare.
