We’ve made the following changes to our Medicare Advantage plans effective Jan. 1, 2020:
Passage Plan 1 (HMO) members will no longer need referrals for specialist care. We will still require members to have Passage PCPs, who coordinate their care.
Our dual special needs plan in 2020 will move from our Passage product suite to become Choice Dual (HMO D-SNP), with expanded options for primary care providers, increased allowances for over-the-counter (OTC) purchases, transportation benefits and routine eyewear. We’ve also added coverage for an annual physical exam (in addition to the annual wellness exam) and comprehensive dental coverage. D-SNP members will no longer need referrals for specialist care.
