Snp model of care

SNP Model of Care

  • The SNP (Special Needs Plan) Model of Care is the architecture for care management policy, procedures, and operational systems for members with both Medicare and Medicaid otherwise known as Dual Members.

  • The MOC is expected to be a tool used by the MAO to improve patient outcomes of care.


Fcny snp demographics

FCNY SNP Demographics

  • Fidelis Care has two Special Needs Programs (SNP), both are for dual Medicare/Medicaid eligible members. The SNP Dual Advantage Flex plan is for members who receive their Medicaid benefits from the fee for service program and their Medicare benefits through Fidelis Advantage. The SNP Dual Advantage is for members who receive their Medicaid and Medicare from Fidelis managed care programs.

  • The current gender mix is 60% female, 40% male. The age break-out of the current membership demonstrates a population that is 40% under the age of 65. This particular population contains members who are disabled and therefore require additional health care services and outreach such as transportation assistance or in-home personal care assistance.
