01/2019: UnitedHealthcare Community Plan Significantly Expanded Dual Special Needs Program - UnitedHealthcare Dual Complete

On Jan. 1, 2019, UnitedHealthcare began serving eligible members in a Dual Special Needs Plan (DSNP) — United Healthcare Dual Complete, a Medicare Advantage plan — in almost 250 new counties across the United States. This expansion includes two states new to the Dual Complete offering, Kentucky and Maryland, and 16 states with new service areas. DSNP is a Medicare Advantage plan for members who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. DSNPs are a specialized type of Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan (MAPD) and must follow existing Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rules.
