About Institutional SNP
Institutional Special Needs Plans (I-SNP) are Medicare Advantage plans designed for beneficiaries who require long periods of institutional care at a facility, such as a long term care skilled nursing facility or standard nursing facility - LTC SNF/NF or a psychiatric facility. I-SNPs may also cover beneficiaries who require nursing care at home.
To be eligible for an I-SNP someone must require, or expect to require, 90 days or longer of institutional level of care. Each State may have different assessment tools or methodologies to determine if someone’s required level of care is considered “institutional”.
