MVP DualAccess Provider Education

Understanding MVP’s Dual Special Needs Plan 

On January 1, 2022, MVP launched a new Dual Special Needs Program (D-SNP) benefit plan to serve individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid in the Capital District (Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties), and the Hudson Valley (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties). In January 2023, we added Monroe County to our service area.  

Special Needs Plans are a type of Medicare Advantage benefit plan that offers intensive care coordination for individuals with special needs. Our D-SNP benefit plan is known as the DualAccess plan. 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require Providers who care for patients in D-SNP plans to complete an annual training. The training below is self-directed, but MVP Professional Relations representatives will be happy to assist or answer any questions.  

Please ensure all Providers in your group have completed this training, then submit the form below. Upon submitting this form, the authorized representative will have attested that all Providers within the practice have completed the D-SNP training, and that all those who join in 2023 will complete the training. 

Please attest to completing the 2023 DualAccess training by December 31, 2022.
