HAP offers enhanced Medicare Advantage benefits during COVID-19 special enrollment period

DETROIT — Health Alliance Plan (HAP), a Michigan-based nonprofit health plan, is reminding Medicare beneficiaries that they can take advantage of enhanced benefits during a special enrollment period that runs through June 30.

Because the COVID-19 pandemic impacted their ability to switch plans during the Medicare Open Enrollment Period earlier this year, Medicare beneficiaries have been granted a special enrollment period by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in which to select a new health plan.

“This is a good time for Medicare members to shop for a plan,” said Margaret Anderson, chief sales and marketing officer, HAP. “HAP has significantly expanded its offerings to make access to care easy and affordable while providing the benefits that our members want – and now need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Benefits like our over-the-counter allowance and free home delivery of prescriptions make it possible for members to get the supplies they need without leaving home.”
