This includes its existing presence in Tarrant, Johnson, Dallas, Collin, Denton and Rockwall counties as well as its expansion into Hood, Wise and (for the first time) all parts of Parker counties.

Seniors who choose Care N’ Care can also avail themselves of the health plan’s Healthcare Concierge program. All members of Care N’ Care are assigned a personal Healthcare Concierge to serve as the single point of contact and help facilitate their healthcare needs, such as scheduling appointments, help with claims or billing, answering questions regarding prescriptions, and more.

“Selecting healthcare coverage is a very personal and important decision, which is why we’ve carefully designed our array of HMO and PPO benefit plans based on what members have told us is important to them,” said Wendy Karsten, CEO of Care N’ Care. “For more than a decade, Medicare recipients in North Texas have been trusting us to provide the affordable, accessible and member-friendly care that allows them to live life to its fullest. Our 2019 benefit packages are all about providing seniors with the healthy advantage they need to enjoy this special time in their life.”

The annual enrollment period for choosing a Medicare Advantage plan for 2019 runs Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. During this time seniors and others on Medicare may choose to switch their health plan or move from traditional Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan (or move back to original Medicare) with their new coverage taking effect January 1, 2019.
