Top Payers Still Dominate as SNP Market Expands at Rapid Pace

From 2017 to 2023, the number of people enrolled in Special Needs Plans (SNPs) grew by more than 150% to about 6.3 million lives, according to the latest update to AIS’s Directory of Health Plans. Dual Eligible SNPs (D-SNPs) saw the most growth, a mammoth 170% increase to 5.6 million lives, followed by Institutional SNPS (I-SNPs) at 86% growth, then Chronic Condition SNPs (C-SNPs) at 58% growth.

Payers have grown to meet that surge, with the total number of SNP offerings expanding from 498 to 1,082 plans between 2017 and 2023, per an analysis of CMS’s Landscape files from Clear View Solutions, LLC. Clear View’s data shows that in a typical year, the number of new SNP offerings has exceeded the number of plans dropped.
