About the Health Plan
West Virginia Senior Advantage
West Virginia Senior Advantage (HMO SNP) members get more than what is covered by Original Medicare, plus a dedicated advanced practice clinician (either a nurse practitioner or physician assistant) leading a personalized care plan. West Virginia Senior Advantage is an Institutional Special Needs Plan that covers all the benefits of Original Medicare (Parts A and B) with prescription drug coverage (Part D).
Membership advantages include:
- Coordinated care and more personal attention.
- Part D prescription drug coverage.
- Routine vision, hearing, and foot care plus preventive services and screenings.
- Regular visits from your advanced practice clinician to your residing nursing center to help avoid unnecessary and often unwanted trips to the hospital.
- Advanced practice clinician can complete tests and treatments in the nursing center that are normally performed in the hospital.
- One point of contact for communication with you, your family, your doctors, and the nursing facility staff.
How much is the monthly premium?
$37.00 per month. In addition, you must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium.
How much is the deductible?
$183 per year for in-network services. This may change for 2020.
$415 deductible per year for Part D prescription drugs. This may change for 2020.
Is there any limit on how much I will pay for my covered services?
Yes. Like all Medicare health plans, our plan protects you by having yearly limits on your out-of-pocket costs for medical and hospital care.
Your yearly limit(s) in this plan:
- $6,400 for services you receive from in-network providers.
If you reach the limit on out-of-pocket costs, you keep getting covered hospital and medical services and we will pay the full cost for the rest of the year.
Please note that you will still need to pay your monthly premiums and cost-sharing for your Part D prescription drugs.
Is there a limit on how much the plan will pay?
Our plan has a coverage limit every year for certain in-network benefits. Contact us for the services that apply.
