To be considered Dual-eligible you will need to live in Harris, Fort Bend, or Montgomery counties, and meet one of these basic requirements:
Individuals who meet one of these basic requirements must also be enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B and receive full Medicaid benefits and/or assistance with Medicare premiums or cost sharing through one of the following “Medicare Savings Program” (MSP) categories:
You get Medicaid coverage of Medicare cost-share but are not eligible for full Medicaid benefits. Medicaid pays your Part A and Part B premiums, deductibles, coinsurance and copayment amounts only. You pay nothing, except for Part D prescription drug copays.
You get Medicaid coverage of Medicare cost-share and are also eligible for full Medicaid benefits. Medicaid pays your Part A and Part B premiums, deductibles, coinsurance and copayment amounts. You pay nothing, except for Part D prescription drug copays.
Medicaid pays for Part B premium and full Medicaid benefits are provided.
Medicaid provides full Medicaid benefits and may provide limited assistance with Medicare cost-sharing.
If your category of Medicaid eligibility changes, your cost share may also increase or decrease.
If you’re newly eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, you can enroll any time of the year, with no restrictions. If you already have both Medicare and Medicaid, or are already enrolled in a D-SNP, you can switch plans up to four times a year:
Memorial Hermann Dual Advantage Special Needs Plan (DSNP) has a network of doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and other providers. If you use providers who aren’t in our network, the plan may not pay for these services.

This plan is a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP). Your ability to enroll will be based on verification that you are entitled to both Medicare and medical assistance from a state plan under Medicaid.
