SNP Special Needs Plan

Please visit our main page on Special Needs Plans for an introduction to these types of coverage.

Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes enrolled in chronic condition special needs plans (C-SNPs) experience better outcomes than they would in non-specialized Medicare Advantage (MA) plans.  Using a claims-based approach to compare beneficiary outcomes on five clinical and utilization  measures, Avalere found that enrollees in a diabetes-focused C-SNP were:

• 22 percent more likely to have a primary care visit,
• 10 percent more likely to receive appropriate diabetes testing,
38 percent less likely to have an inpatient hospital admission,
• 32 percent less likely to have a readmission, and
• 6 percent more likely to fill (and refill) a prescription for an antidiabetic medication.

These findings held true when controlling for expected differences in enrollees’ demographics and health status. The analysis suggests that C-SNPs can improve outcomes for beneficiaries with diabetes compared to non-SNPs.   AnthemInc.com * Avalere.com
