Senior Care Plus was Nevada’s first Medicare Advantage Plan and is still providing healthcare coverage to qualifying members statewide. Senior Care Plus is administered by Hometown Health, the insurance division of Renown Health. That relationship means Senior Care Plus is the only Medicare Advantage Plan supported and accepted at Renown. This preferred access to Renown is a great benefit for northern Nevadans.

When it comes to healthcare coverage, there are three key factors to keep in mind.

Here’s why a Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plan is your best choice.

Cost

Cost matters when searching for the right insurance plan.

Of the four Senior Care Plus plans available to residents of Washoe County and Carson City, three offer a zero-dollar monthly premium and all of them offer zero-dollar primary care office visits. That means no out-of-pocket costs for you.

Additionally, all Senior Care Plus plans have an annual out-of-pocket maximum. This means when you reach this amount, that’s all you will pay. Senior Care Plus pays all other covered medical benefits for the rest of the year. That’s the beauty of a Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plan.

Size of Provider Network and Accessibility

Although saving money is important, it’s more important to be able to see a doctor when and where you need to.

Senior Care Plus members enjoy the most comprehensive healthcare provider network in the region. Thousands of providers, including many hard-to-find specialists, are in the Senior Care Plus network. Since Senior Care Plus is part of the Renown Health family, you get priority access to all that Renown has to offer, which you won’t find with any other Medicare Advantage Plan.

Coverage

Medical coverage needs are personal and unique to every member. Understanding a plan’s benefits is essential when picking the best coverage for you.

Of course, the important benefits you associate with a healthcare plan are included in all Senior Care Plus plans: urgent care visits, specialists’ visits, lab services, imaging — all with reasonable copays. What sets Senior Care Plus apart from the rest are the additional benefits for preventive health. Two of the plans, including the zero-dollar premium Renown Preferred Plan, have a $2,000 comprehensive dental benefit.

Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plans also have a vision benefit allowing you to get a new pair of glasses every year. In addition, these plans offer a fitness benefit, so you can join a local gym because Senior Care Plus wants to keep you healthy.

Another interesting benefit is the over-the-counter benefit. If you choose the Renown Preferred Plan, you can select $50 worth of over-the-counter products such as: cold medicine, dental products, diabetic supplies, and digestive aides. Remember, that’s $50 worth of over-the-counter products four times per year. All on a plan that doesn’t cost a thing.

Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plans offer many added benefits tailored to Nevadans.

When you choose Senior Care Plus you will:

  1. Save money while being protected by their annual out-of-pocket maximum.
  2. Have access to the region's most comprehensive provider network including priority access to Renown Health.
  3. Enjoy the unparalleled healthcare benefits of vision, hearing, dental, over-the counter products, gym membership and more.

Medicare Advantage Plans have been around for more than 25 years and continue to grow in popularity. In some parts of the country, more than half of all Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan. Only 40% of Nevadans are enrolled, but that number grows every year.
