This 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 and Medicaid Services (CMS) rules. The UnitedHealthcare Dual Complete Program will reimburse claims according to your UnitedHealthcare contractual Medicare Advantage payment appendix.
