CarePlus 2024 Affordable Medicare Advantage Options Include Expanded Dental Network Across Florida

MIAMI , October 01 /Businesswire/ - CarePlus Health Plans, Inc., a recognized leader in healthcare delivery that has been offering Medicare Advantage health plans in Florida for over 23 years, announced that in 2024 the company is adding a new “dental allowance” benefit on many plans.

The announcement follows a recent expansion of the number of dentists available to its members across Florida. In addition, the company’s 2024 Medicare Advantage plans for Floridians eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid will include help paying for living expenses, such as groceries, rent and utilities.

“Every year, we carefully consider how the plans we offer can meet the different needs of our current and future members across Florida,” said CarePlus President Steven Ruiz. “For 2024, I’m pleased to share that we’re expanding our commitment to put spending power back in CarePlus members’ pockets by providing our popular Part B premium giveback benefit on more than 60% of our Medicare Advantage plans. At the same time, members will enjoy expanded dental service thanks to our recent network expansion and trusted dental provider partners.”

New for 2024

  • The CareNeeds Platinum (HMO D-SNP) plan adds a second CarePlus plan option for people who have both Medicare and Medicaid based on limited income.
  • A new dental allowance benefit on certain plans can be used toward any covered services including dentures, root canals, crowns, fillings, and more.
  • The CarePlus Spending Account Card on certain CarePlus plans is pre-loaded with one or both of the following allowances (if the plan includes them):
    • CareEssentials Allowance for groceries, rent, utilities, OTC products and other eligible purchases.
    • Flex Allowance for expanded dental, vision and hearing coverage.
  • The CareAccess (HMO) plan, available in the Daytona and Orlando areas in 2024, does not require referrals for in-network specialist visits.
  • Our Medicare Part B premium reduction benefit is on more than 60% of CarePlus plans for 2024. The Part B premium reduction benefit pays all or part of your $164.90 monthly Part B premium.* That means members of plans with this benefit can expect more money in their social security checks each month.

Also Included on Most CarePlus Medicare Advantage Plans

  • SilverSneakers®, which provides memberships at participating fitness centers and access to classes designed with the Medicare beneficiary in mind
  • Meal delivery program after hospital stays
  • Free rides to select locations
  • Dental coverage
  • Vision and hearing coverage, including an allowance for eyewear and hearing aids
  • $0 to low specialist copay
  • $0 primary care copay
  • Hospital stay coverage
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Acupuncture coverage
  • $50 gift card reward for completing certain healthy activities
