The STAR+PLUS program provides basic health care services, such as doctor visits, and long-term services and supports, such as helping in your home with daily activities, home modifications, respite (short-term supervision) and personal assistance. Each health plan also provides "value-added" or extra services. The comparison charts below show the value-added services offered in each area of the state. Use the comparison charts to help you pick the health plan that will best meet your needs.

A couple of things to remember:

  • STAR+PLUS members who are covered by both Medicare and Medicaid, also called dual eligible, get only their long-term services and supports through STAR+PLUS, so there are separate value-added comparison charts for those members.
  • The comparison charts for members who live in a nursing home are different from the comparison charts for members who do not live in a nursing home.

Find the area where you live. Then, pick the STAR+PLUS services that apply to your type of coverage – Medicaid Only or Medicaid and Medicare.
