Special Needs BasicCare (SNBC) for people with disabilities

Special Needs BasicCare (SNBC) health plans work hard to help you achieve your personal health goals and believe that every member has the right to the best health possible.

SNBC is a voluntary managed care program for people with disabilities who are 18-64 years old and have Medical Assistance (MA). In SNBC, members may have a care coordinator or navigator to help them get health care and support services.

If you have MA and are eligible for but not enrolled in SNBC, we will send you a letter (PDF) asking you to either:

  • Choose an SNBC health plan
  • Tell us you want to opt out of the program and keep your MA fee-for-service coverage

The SNBC Health Plan Coverage brochure (DHS-6301) (PDF) provides an overview of the program and answers frequently asked questions. SNBC is administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) and health plans under contract. It is available statewide, but the health plan choices vary by county.

Stakeholders: For information about upcoming public meetings, see the Special Needs Purchasing Public Meetings page.
