TexanPlus HMO is a Medicare service that offers health care packages to qualifying individuals. Initial eligibility for TexanPlus Medicare generally begins three months prior to an individual's 65th birthday or in the 25th month of disability. TexanPlus offers three different HMO plans: Choice HMO, Classic HMO and Value HMO.
Each of the three Medicare plans that TexanPlus HMO offers - Choice HMO, Classic HMO and Value HMO - comes with different features to fit the needs of most individuals. The Choice HMO plan is the most comprehensive of the three and offers prescription drug coverage, network flexibility, dental and vision coverage and unlimited "Nifty after Fifty" fitness programs. The Classic HMO plan is a more traditional route. This package offers all of the features of the Choice HMO plan except for network flexibility, which it replaces with transportation services. The Value HMO packages is the most basic of the three. It offers the same features as the Classic HMO package except for prescription drug coverage, which is does not replace with another benefit.
All three HMO plans offered by TexanPlus share certain benefits to policy holders. These include no cost monthly plan premiums and preventive screenings as well as a $0 deductible for prescription drug coverage. TexanPlus also offers a three month supply of most prescription drugs for only a one month copay, decreasing the cost of medicine to its customers. Vision and dental discounts are also available.
