Independent Health’s Assure Advantage (HMO-SNP) is a specialized Medicare Advantage Plan (a Medicare “Special Needs Plan”), which means its benefits are designed for people with special health care needs. Independent Health’s Assure Advantage is designed to provide additional health benefits that specifically help people who have chronic heart failure and diabetes.
Our plan includes providers who specialize in treating chronic heart failure and diabetes. It also includes health programs designed to serve the specialized needs of people with these conditions. In addition, our plan covers prescription drugs to treat most medical conditions, including the drugs that are usually used to treat chronic heart failure and diabetes. As a member of the plan, you get benefits specially tailored to your condition and have all your care coordinated through our plan.
To be eligible, it’s important that you meet all of the following criteria:
- Reside in Erie County.
- Have chronic heart failure and diabetes.
- Must be entitled or enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B.
- Cannot currently have end stage renal disease (ESRD). (Please note: This does not apply if you are currently enrolled in another Independent Health plan.)
Note: Enrollment into Independent Health’s Assure Advantage HMO-SNP plan will automatically disenroll a person from any other Medicare Advantage plan.
