Out-of-pocket medical costs shouldn’t keep you from getting the healthcare you need.

Senior Partners Care (SPC), brought to you by Senior Community Services, enables Minnesota seniors to get the care they need by bridging the financial gap between their medical bills and their Medicare coverage.

How does Senior Partners Care work?

Minnesota seniors who meet the program’s eligibility requirements submit an application to Senior Community Services. Upon acceptance, clients who use SPC healthcare partners for Medicare-approved services are eligible to have the balance on medical services and treatments (after Medicare payment) waived.

Who provides the care?

Senior Partners Care has partnered with most major metropolitan area hospitals and hundreds of clinics and providers statewide. These healthcare providers (SPC partners) have agreed to consider a waiver of Medicare deductibles, coinsurance and co-payments.

What services are covered?

Senior Partners Care is not insurance, HMO, PPO or a Medicare supplement. This program does not pay bills. To receive support, SPC enrollees must use SPC medical health care provider partners, and the service or care to be provided must be allowed by Medicare.

Most treatments or services you receive from an SPC partner that are covered by Medicare should be covered by this program.

The decision to waive a Medicare deductible, coinsurance or co-payment is made by the SPC partner based on a determination of the enrollee’s financial need.
