Medicare Part D: The Medicare prescription drug benefit program. We call this program “Part D” for short. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs, vaccines, and some supplies not covered by Medicare Part A or Medicare Part B or Medical Assistance. Our plan includes Medicare Part D.Medicare Part A: The Medicare program that covers most medically necessary hospital, skilled nursing facility, home health, and hospice care.
Medicare Part B: The Medicare program that covers services (such as lab tests, surgeries, and doctor visits) and supplies (such as wheelchairs and walkers) that are medically necessary to treat a disease or condition. Medicare Part B also covers many preventive and screening services.
Medical Assistance: This is the name of Minnesota’s Medicaid program. Medical Assistance is run by the state and is paid for by the state and the federal government. It helps people with limited incomes and resources pay for long-term services and supports and medical costs.
It covers extra services and some drugs not covered by Medicare. Medicaid programs vary from state to state, but most health care costs are covered if you qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid.

Member Advisory Committee

Members are the heart of our company. The Member Advisory Committee (MAC) is a forum for South Country members, family of members and advocates to share their unique perspectives and experiences.

In order for South Country to be the best health plan it can be, we need to know what works for our members and what doesn’t. Your experience can help us understand the challenges you meet in your local health care setting. By advocating for yourself, you are also helping others like you.

Participants in Member Advisory Committee meetings can ask questions, provide feedback and propose ideas to help us improve our health plan to better respond to their needs.

Will I really make a difference?

By sharing your experiences and becoming involved in the Member Advisory Committee, you will help South Country do things in a way that works for all members. South Country is committed to our members, and we want to give you every chance to participate in how your health care works.
