FIDA Participant Plan Benefits 2019

Elderplan FIDA Total Care delivers more than the Medicare and Medicaid benefits you currently receive. There’s a larger pool of doctors to choose from. Dental benefits are expanded to cover dentures, root canals, prosthetics and more. Plus, you get a dedicated Care Manager who manages the people and services you need to remain safely at home. These services and people may include doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, long-term care providers, and other health and medical professionals.

Coordinating your Medicare and Medicaid coverage and getting the care you need can be hard work. There are calls to make, appointments to schedule, transportation to arrange, and lots of details to keep track of. Elderplan FIDA Total Care can help with all that. You can take comfort in knowing that your Medicare and Medicaid benefits are working well together and that your Care Manager is looking out for you, your health, and your desire to stay safely at home.
