Medi-Cal Redetermination Resumes Soon and will Impact Medicare Benefits for Some of Your Patients
Talk to your D-SNP patients about annual Medi-Cal eligibility renewal
If they no longer are eligible for Medi-Cal, let them know they have options.
Your patients look to you for expert advice.
Patients who are enrolled in a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP), where they receive both Medi-Cal and Medicare benefits, must verify their Medi-Cal eligibility to continue dual coverage.
Let your patients know:
- A letter will be sent a few months before their Medi-Cal anniversary date with instructions for verifying their eligibility. They can also visit KeepMediCalCoverage.org to get the details on their renewal.
- Their dual Medicare benefits are dependent on their Medi-Cal eligibility.
- If their eligibility is confirmed, they can continue their existing coverage.
- If they are no longer eligible for Medi-Cal, they can explore our other Medicare plan options, which may still provide no- or low-cost premiums and out-of-pocket expenses.
Thank you for all that you do for the health and well-being of your patients.
