SOCIAL HEALTH MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION

A social health maintenance organization is a health care insurance plan offering a complete range of coverage and benefits, including: personal care services, hearing aids, dental care, eyeglasses, prescription drug and chronic care benefits, short-term nursing home care and medical transportation services. An SHMO is more expensive, but enrollees are covered for far more services than Original Medicare.
