Managed care programs for seniors and people with disabilities
People age 65 or older
Most people who have Medical Assistance must enroll in a health plan. People age 65 and older have two managed care options:
The Senior LinkAge Line® can help you understand your options. Call the LinkAge Line at (800)-333-2433.
People who have disabilities
Special Needs BasicCare (SNBC) is for people under age 65 who are certified disabled and eligible for Medical Assistance. The program also incorporates Medicare Parts A, B and D for enrollees who have that coverage. Enrollees will have a care coordinator or navigator to help getting health care and support services. This program is available in most counties. It is administered by DHS and contracted health plans. Enrollees get personal care assistance and private duty nursing services through DHS (fee for service). Waiver services, if any, are provided by the county.
The Disability Linkage Line® can help you decide if this option is best for you. Call the Linkage Line at (866) 333-2466 or through Minnesota Relay at 711.
