Plan Details

Banner – University Care Advantage (BUCA) is a specialized Medicare Advantage Plan known as a “Special Needs Plan (SNP).” SNP plans include benefits that are designed for people with special health care needs.

BUCA members have both Medicare and AHCCCS (Medicaid) and have prescription drug coverage through our plan. Our members also receive “Extra Help” from Medicare to pay for the costs of Medicare prescription drugs. BUCA will help manage all of these benefits for you so that you get the health care services and payment assistance that you are entitled to.
