What about the traditional Medicare benefits and are they any additional with a HealthSpring plan?
With a HealthSpring plan, all traditional Medicare benefits are offered as well as extra benefits that aren’t typically available on Medicare. Many people who enroll with HealthSpring enjoy lower, more predictable costs. The plans are designed for both those on Medicare and Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries. HealthSpring markets these plans to individuals who voluntarily enroll to gain access to the additional benefits over what is provided by Medicare. The additional benefits include things like Medicare Part D prescription benefits, transportation, dental, vision, hearing, and wellness and fitness programs.
HealthSpring’s goal is to help their members to live healthier lives. They believe their focus on Medicare allows them to better understand the needs of their beneficiaries, which helps HealthSpring to make plans that suit different health areas. HealthSpring works closely with primary care doctors to coordinate the care of its members. They believe this leads to better care for the members and an improved medial management for HealthSpring. They believe that encouraging the physician to aim for quality over quantity and to concentrate on preventative health measures creates healthier clients with fewer medical problems and costs.
