The I-SNP is designed for eligible Medicare enrollees
who reside in a long-term care facility.


Simply put, the I-SNP is an all-inclusive plan that replaces traditional Medicare. It covers:

  • Inpatient care (Part A)
  • Outpatient and primary care (Part B)
  • Supplemental benefits including vision, dental, hearing, etc. (Part C)
  • Prescription drugs (Part D)

An onsite focus on preventative care.

With an I-SNP, facilities are provided with an onsite Nurse Practitioner and RN Care Coordinator to:

  • Improve outcomes
  • Prevent unnecessary hospitalizations
  • Reduce costs

This team coordinates all aspects of care, collaborating with residents, families, physicians, and hospitals, depending on a resident’s needs. Sophisticated technology and electronically tracked medical records provide up-to-the-minute information on each resident, helping the care team catch health issues early on.

Here again, the I-SNP is a tech-enabled, value-based model, designed to mitigate illnesses and prevent unneccesary hospital stays.

The care team’s roles…

  • Completes Annual Health Risk Assessment (HRA) to establish goals and improve health outcomes

  • Coordinates care with the members PCP, facility, and the interdisciplinary care team (ICT)

In short, the I-SNP is better for everyone.

Provide a higher standard of care. Residents won’t need to be hospitalized as often. Families and physicians will be kept up to date on residents’ care.

And unlike other I-SNPs, the facility shares in 100% of the revenue gained by lowering the cost of care.
