FirstCare Health Plans Bringing Medicare Special Needs Plan to West Texas

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 4, 2018 — Today, officials at FirstCare Health Plans announced the new FirstCare Advantage Dual SNP (HMO SNP) plan, which is back after a brief absence, and available in the Lubbock and Amarillo communities.

The plan is designed to meet the special needs of those with Medicare and Medicaid. They must be eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid in order to enroll in FirstCare Advantage Dual SNP, and they must reside in one of the following Texas counties: Carson, Crosby, Deaf Smith, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, Hutchinson, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Potter, Randall, Swisher, and/or Terry.

“We are excited to introduce a new plan for 2019—FirstCare Advantage Dual SNP for Medicare beneficiaries with both Medicare and Medicaid,” said FirstCare Assistant Vice President of Government Programs Danielle Jaber. “At FirstCare, we’ve been helping Texans cut through health care confusion for over 30 years. We’re proud to be a part of the communities we serve, and we believe all Texans should have access to affordable, high-quality health care.”

For 2019, beneficiaries will be able to access a number of programs that enhance the care and services covered under the FirstCare Advantage Dual SNP plan. These include assigning dedicated case managers to members who need help accessing care, providing education and support to members who have certain chronic conditions, connecting members to a pharmacist who helps them manage their medicines, accessing telemedicine services via FirstCare Virtual Care—powered by MDLIVE, and providing a free phone service for members that allows them to talk with a nurse about their health concerns—24 hours a day, seven days a week.
