You are eligible to join Dual Prime if:
Medicare Prescription Drug benefits are only available to beneficiaries with Part D Prescription Drug coverage or members of a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan like CareFirst Medicare Advantage. If your current or former employer helps pay for your drugs, it is advisable that you do not enroll in this plan.
Members must use plan providers except in emergency or urgent care situations or for out-of-area renal dialysis. If you obtain non-emergent, routine care from out-of-network providers, neither Medicare nor CareFirst Medicare Advantage will be responsible for the costs.
A Dual-eligible Special Needs Plan is available to anyone who has both Medical Assistance from the State and Medicare. Premiums, copays, coinsurance and deductibles may vary based on the level of Extra Help that you receive.
