The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has expanded the opportunity for health plans to provide supplemental benefits that offer additional services or reduced cost sharing for services and/or items that are tied to a specific health status or chronic disease state.

For 2019, MVP Medicare Advantage plans include targeted benefits for members with Diabetes, Stroke and Hypertension. MVP Medicare Advantage plan members must have a confirmed diagnosis to qualify for these benefits.
