SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Aug. 3, 2021 — Sanford Health Plan will offer a new Medicare Advantage plan this fall for seniors seeking more tailored and comprehensive health benefits, pending approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

“As a health plan that is part of Sanford Health’s integrated system of care, we are uniquely positioned to provide personalized, comprehensive and affordable coverage for Medicare beneficiaries across the Dakotas and western Minnesota,” said John Snyder, president, Sanford Health Plan. “We are focused on keeping people healthy and well, and out of the hospital by equipping our members with innovative services to improve health and manage chronic conditions.”

Medicare Advantage Plans provide an all-in-one bundled option for seniors, combining Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B coverage with additional, more robust benefits which may include prescription drug coverage, preventive care, dental, vision and hearing and other services like meals and fitness memberships.

The new Medicare Advantage plan will be available to Medicare beneficiaries in select counties across South Dakota, North Dakota and western Minnesota during the Annual Enrollment Period which is open from Oct. 15 – Dec. 7, 2021.

Sanford Health Plan will host community education seminars for Medicare beneficiaries beginning in August. To learn more about these upcoming events and to receive updates when new details are released about the Medicare Advantage plan, sign up online.
