This is a special kind of Medicare Advantage HMO plan called a Dual Eligible Special Needs plan (or HMO D-SNP). It provides extra benefits for no additional cost to people who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. It combines your Original Medicare benefits, your Part D prescription drug coverage, and your Medicaid benefits.
HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. As a member of this plan, you must use in-network providers to get your medical care and services. Nearly every doctor in the region is accepted so finding a doctor is easy. To find a provider near you, click on Find a Doctor.

Members may enroll in the plan only during specific times of the year. You must have Part A and Part B to enroll in the plan. Contact us for more information.
Original Medicare Includes Part A and Part B:
Part A - Hospital Insurance:
Part A helps cover inpatient care in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities (not custodial or long-term care), hospice and some home health care. Many people automatically get Part A after you get disability benefits from Social Security. Most people don't pay a premium for Part A because they or a spouse already paid for it through their payroll taxes while working.
Part B - Medical Insurance:
Part B helps cover doctors' services, outpatient hospital care, preventive care, physical and occupational therapists, and some home health care. Most people pay a monthly premium for Part B. You will need to sign up for Part B during your initial enrollment period (the 7-month period that begins 3 months before the month you turn age 65, includes the month you turn age 65, and ends 3 months after the month you turn age 65). If you don’t sign up for Part B when you are first eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty.
Part C – Medicare Advantage Plans:
Part C is Medicare Advantage plans (like HMO and PPO plans). PacificSource offers Medicare Advantage Plans. Part C is health coverage run by private companies like PacificSource under contract with Medicare. These plans include both Medicare Part A and Part B in the convenience of one plan and fill in some of the gaps in Medicare coverage. Some plans also include Part D Prescription drug coverage and preventive dental in the convenience of one plan. Most people will pay a monthly premium for this coverage. You must continue to pay your Part B premium and must have both Part A and Part B to enroll.
Part D - Prescription Drug Coverage:
Part D is prescription drug coverage run by private companies approved and under contract with Medicare. These plans help lower prescription drug costs and help protect against higher costs in the future. Like other insurance, if a beneficiary decides not to enroll in a drug plan when they are first eligible, they may pay a penalty if they choose to join later. Most people will pay a monthly premium for this coverage.
You may be able to get Extra Help to pay for your prescription drug premiums and costs. To see if you qualify for extra help, call:
Below are some of the costs you will pay if you only had original Medicare:
Part B (Medical)
Part A (Hospital)
Part D (Prescription)
* Most people will pay the standard monthly Part B premium. However, some people will pay a higher premium because of their yearly income (over $85,000 for singles, $170,000 for married couples). For more information about Part B premiums based on income, call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 877-486-2048. You may also call Social Security at 800-772-1213. TTY users should call 800-325-0778.
There are some limitations to Original Medicare. In most cases, the following are not covered:
If you decide you need extra coverage in additional to Original Medicare, you have two options for purchasing additional coverage through Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans. On both plans, you are still on Medicare. Here are the main differences between these plans:
Medicare Advantage Plan (like PacificSource Medicare plans)
These plans (PacificSource Medicare HMO and PPO plans) fill in the gaps by covering some of the costs Medicare does not cover. We provide more benefits than Medicare alone and Medigap plans. And we provide personal service to make it easy.
We offer a variety of plans to meet your needs, including low-priced plans to help save you money. You will also get the convenience of plans that include medical (Part A and Part B) and prescription drug coverage (Part D) all in one plan. Most of our Medicare Advantage plans include dental benefits. We also have the option to add preventive or comprehensive dental coverage for an additional monthly premium. For those who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, we also offer a dual special needs plan.
Finding a doctor is easier because nearly every doctor in the region is accepted by PacificSource. And, with all our Explorer plans, you have the freedom to see any doctor you want that accepts Medicare wherever you are in the United States. Rest assured you are covered when you travel with worldwide urgent and emergency care.
When you go to the doctor you will need only one ID card: your PacificSource Medicare ID card. The front of the card will show whether you have medical, prescription drug, and/or preventive dental coverage. The doctor will need to send the bill to only one company, your Medicare Advantage plan like PacificSource Medicare. We will pay the bills on behalf of Medicare. Medicare reimburses us for their portion of the costs. Since we deal directly with Medicare, you and your doctor will have less paperwork.
Monthly premiums are the same for all ages. Everyone on one plan will pay the same premium for that year.
For more information on Medicare Advantage plans, or to enroll, please call: 866-282-8814, TTY 711
Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap)
These plans also fill in the gaps in Medicare coverage. Original Medicare will cover the services under Part A and Part B. The Medigap plan will then cover some of the additional costs Medicare did not cover. If you also wanted Part D coverage, you would need to purchase a Part D prescription drug plan in addition to your Medigap plan.
Not all doctors accept Original Medicare. If your doctor does not accept Original Medicare, then you will either need to find another doctor, pay for the services yourself, or enroll in a plan that has a contract with your doctor. Generally, services outside the United States are not covered.
When you go to the doctor you will need two ID cards: your red, white, and blue Medicare card and your Medigap card. The doctor will need to send the bill to two places: first to Medicare to pay their portion and then to your Medigap plan to pay the plan's portion.
Monthly premiums are based on your age.
