Beneficiaries with ESRD typically won’t qualify for Medicare Advantage eligibility. However, patients with ESRD have a certain type of Advantage eligibility. ESRD patients can enroll in a special type of Medicare Advantage plan, known as a Special Needs Plan (SNP).

Medicare offers different types of SNPs; one type is specific for those with kidney failure. If you live in a service area where these SNPs are available, you may qualify to enroll.

 

Other Options than Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage plans aren’t your only option for help with coverage of healthcare costs should you become seriously ill. Medical expenses can potentially wipe out your bank account, it’s good to have a general understanding of your options so this doesn’t happen.

Another option besides Medicare Advantage is Medicare Supplement Insurance also a Medigap policy. Nevertheless, you should understand that Supplement Insurance coverage is different from Medicare Advantage coverage.

Supplement Insurance helps cover healthcare costs for things like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. If you have extensive healthcare needs and often are visiting the doctors, Medigap could be a great option for your Medicare coverage.
