    Health Care Reform:

    Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

    Chronic Conditions & Medicare: Special Needs Plan (SNP)

    What Else You Should Know

    Your SNP will have a network of providers. You may have to pick a primary care doctor. And most of the time you will have to use doctors, hospitals, and other providers in the network. Emergencies are an exception.

    If you aren't happy with your SNP plan, you may switch to original Medicare at any time. During the annual open enrollment, you can choose another Medicare Advantage or SNP plan.

    If you move out of the area that your SNP serves, you can switch plans or go back to original Medicare.

    If you are no longer eligible for SNP coverage, you can join another Medicare plan or go back to original Medicare.
