Helping You Live Your Healthiest Life

With Prominence Medicare Advantage, we include benefits and extra support for preventing and managing common chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and mental health conditions.

Your doctor is your key partner in managing these and many other medical conditions. We designed Prominence’s plans to help support those efforts by offering great benefits. We also trust your doctor.

Here are just some ways this plan can make a difference for you!

Cardiovascular services: Helping you keep your heart healthy

Managing your risk factors for cardiovascular disease is essential to your heart health — and it’s a focus of Prominence Medicare Advantage. We make it easy to connect with providers and services committed to meeting your individual healthy heart needs at little or no cost to you.

New Cardiac Plan!

We’ve developed a new plan especially for people with cardiac conditions. If you have heart disease or other related conditions, you may qualify for our new Heart Plan, which provides specialized care for your cardiovascular or heart condition(s). Plus, some specialists, including cardiologists, are available for $0.

Qualifying for the Prominence Heart Plan is simple:

  • Step 1: Your physician has told you that you have one or more of the following cardiovascular and/or heart conditions: cardiac arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, chronic venous thromboembolic disorder or chronic heart failure.
  • Step 2: Work with your insurance broker or call us at the number above to submit the application to enroll in the Prominence Heart Plan.

With Prominence Medicare Advantage, you get:

  • Access to a network of caring and skilled local providers to help stay on track and manage key heart-health indicators like blood pressure and cholesterol;
  • Local events and educational opportunities to help you make the most of your benefits and take care of your health;
  • A free Prominence Health Assessment (PHA) to develop your own customized preventive care plan—plus you get a gift card just for completing the assessment! This one-hour assessment provides an opportunity to review your medical and family history, run a series of useful tests and develop a set of personalized next steps just for you.

Understanding heart disease — information that can help

Your doctor is your closest partner for managing your heart health but staying informed can also help empower you to be an active part of the process.

Keeping diabetes in check? We’ve got you covered

With diabetic supplies at a $0 copay and no “donut hole” for many medications and insulin products, Prominence Medicare Advantage is designed to help you more easily manage your diabetes, rather than diabetes managing you.

With Prominence Medicare Advantage:

  • Diabetic supplies, including Contour (by the manufacture Ascenscia) meters and test strips, are covered at a $0 copay.
  • Diabetic medications on Tiers 1, 2, and 6 and select insulin products on Tiers 2 and 3 will never fall into the so-called prescription drug “donut hole.”
  • Select brand-name insulins are covered in the Coverage Gap and never cost more than the Tier 3 copay.
  • A 100-day prescription option for medications in Tiers 1, 2 and 6 reduces the number of copays, if any, to save you money on refills.

Also, helpful and easy-to-understand educational materials and programs are available to assist you in managing your diabetes every day. This benefit includes member newsletters with health tips and reminders about benefits and preventive services. Not only are many screenings and services free; for some screenings, we’ll even pay you with a gift card just for participating!

Additionally, a free Prominence Health Assessment (PHA) helps create a personalized preventive care plan. This once-a-year assessment is another way to help ensure you get recommended services and take advantage of opportunities to maintain and improve your health.

Of course, your doctor is your key partner and a great resource. Through regular doctor visits, you can get help staying on track with things like diet, exercise, medications and overall health concerns.

Not yet enrolled in a Prominence Medicare Advantage plan? Once you join, you will receive a membership booklet highlighting all the benefits we provide, along with contact information if you need assistance with refills or concerns about your diabetic care.
