Sanford Heart of America Health Plan

Medicare

Sanford Heart of America Health Plan is a Medicare approved Cost Plan. Many Medicare beneficiaries find that managed care cost plans are a good way to get more health care for their dollar. Sanford Heart of America Health Plans (SHAHP) will provide or arrange for all Medicare covered services. This means if you join a managed care cost plan and get all of your services through the Sanford Heart of America Health Plan, your out-of-pocket costs are usually more predictable. Also, depending on your health needs, those costs may be less than you would pay if you were liable for the regular Medicare deductibles and co-insurance amounts.

What are the advantages of managed care cost plans?

  • No Medicare deductibles - only monthly premiums
  • No claim forms and virtually no paperwork for you
  • Local administration
  • Predictable expenses - so you can easily budget your health care dollars
  • No health screening, waiting periods or pre-existing condition clauses
