Understanding MVP’s Dual Special Needs Plans

On January 1, 2022, MVP launched a new Dual Special Needs Program (D-SNP) benefit plan to serve individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid in the Capital District (Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties), and the Hudson Valley (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties). In January 2024, Monroe County was added to our service area.

Special Needs Plans are a type of Medicare Advantage benefit plan that offers intensive care coordination for individuals with special needs. Our D-SNP benefit plan is known as the DualAccess plan.

On July 1, 2024, MVP added the new MVP DualAccess Complete (HMO D-SNP) plan with integrated benefits for dually eligible enrollees (IB-Dual). IB-Dual is a D-SNP that offers Medicare Advantage and Managed Medicaid benefits with the same carrier.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires Providers who care for patients in D-SNP plans and vendors of plans that offer D-SNP plans to complete an annual training. After you complete the following training, please complete the form below it to attest to its completion.
