Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans (C-SNPs) In California

Medicare Advantage Chronic Condition SNPs are for people living with diabetes, lung disorders, cardiovascular disorders, chronic heart failure, and/or end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Customized Care, Coverage, And Resources


Chronic Condition Special Needs (C-SNP) plans are a type of Medicare Advantage (MA)  plan designed to meet the unique needs of people with one or more chronic conditions, including diabetes, end-stage renal disease (ESRD), lung conditions or heart disease. 


Anthem Medicare Advantage C-SNPs aim to improve health outcomes with a customized approach to managing your chronic conditions, including:

  Tailored benefits

 Individualized care plans

 Dedicated care team

 Out-of-pocket savings

 Transportation assistance


Living with severe or chronic health conditions can be difficult, but you don’t have to do it alone. Our C-SNP plans give you access to the right doctors, treatments, and resources to help you stay your healthiest.

Am I Eligible For A C-SNP?

You may be eligible for a C-SNP if you have one or more chronic conditions, depending on where you live. Some plans also cover multiple conditions.

Diabetes mellitus

C-SNPs for diabetes typically cover blood glucose monitoring, insulin management, nutritional training, and foot care, as well as vision, hearing, dental care. Your primary doctor, endocrinologist (diabetes specialist), and other providers will work with you to coordinate a personal plan of care.


End-stage renal disease (ESRD)

If you have this kidney condition, your care team will include your primary doctor and a nephrologist (kidney-care specialist). You’ll receive personal support, nutritional training, necessary treatments, and prescription drug coverage. Preventive care is also covered, including routine health, dental, vision and hearing screenings.

Chronic lung disorders

These C-SNPs offer special care for those with lung-related disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary hypertension, or emphysema. A pulmonologist (lung specialist) will coordinate with your primary doctor for treatments, medications, and general health management. These plans also include special coverage for items like oxygen supplies and other medical equipment.



C-SNP coverage for chronic lung disorders is available in California.

CHF and cardiovascular disorders

This C-SNP offers special coverage for chronic venous thromboembolism (CVT), chronic heart failure (CHF), cardiac arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, or peripheral vascular disease. A cardiologist (heart specialist) will work with you and your doctor to determine the best course of ongoing care.




C-SNP coverage for chronic heart failure and cardiovascular disorders is available in California.
