New plan benefits

SSM Health & Dean Health Plan offer benefits for all ages

Oct 30, 2020

Navigating health insurance and your Medicare options can be overwhelming, but SSM Health has partnered with Dean Health Plan to offer its patients coverage at any age. We offer plans for both individual and family health insurance and Medicare coverage for individuals throughout south central Wisconsin.

This year, Dean Health Plan and Dean Advantage are excited to bring its members new benefits like $0 transportation to and from medical appointments with Lyft, $0 virtual visits and more.

In addition to transportation and virtual visits, individual and family plans have urgent care copays that match their provider office visits to allow them to get the care they need, when they need it. Dean Health Plan has also introduced Copay Elite Plans for residents of Dodge, Green Lake, Jefferson and Iowa counties. These individual and family plans offer lower office copays for visits to select providers. Learn more at

Dean Advantage Medicare members can receive additional benefits that are not covered under Original Medicare (Medicare Parts A and B). Our Medicare Advantage plans now include coverage for both preventive and comprehensive dental benefits through Delta Dental. Dean Advantage has also partnered with Papa, a company that connects screened and trained Papa Pals to members who seek assistance with transportation, meal prep, house chores, technology lessons, companionship, and other senior services, both in-person and virtually.

Dean Advantage also has a meal program for members after a hospital stay, and Silver & Fit, a gym membership and home fitness benefit. All of our Dean Advantage plans offer $60 per quarter for you to spend on useful over-the-counter supplies like bandages, pain relievers and much more. Finally, Dean Advantage plans include comprehensive hearing and vision benefits for its members.

These great benefits for both Medicare and individual and family plan members are in addition to existing health and wellness benefits such as earning money through wellness with our Living Healthy Rewards program, partner perks at local businesses, and our 24-hour nurse advice line.
