SNP Approval and Model of Care Review Process
About the Program
Medicare Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are a type of Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO). SNPs were created by Congress in the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003, as a new type of Medicare managed care plan that focus on certain vulnerable groups of Medicare beneficiaries.
What is a Model of Care?
SNP Model of Care (MOCs) are considered a vital quality improvement tool and integral component for ensuring that the unique needs of each beneficiary enrolled in a SNP are identified and addressed.
