Applying for VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth

Thousands of New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS are currently being served by VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth, the Medicaid HIV Special Needs Plan from the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. 
 
If you are interested in the plan, talk to your healthcare provider or call:
 
CHOICE SelectHealth
1-866-469-7774  (TTY: 711)
Monday – Friday, 8 am – 6 pm

Some important plan information:
  • All primary care providers in CHOICE SelectHealth who care for persons with HIV/AIDS must be qualified as HIV Specialists
  • Members of CHOICE SelectHealth must use their primary care provider and other providers in the plan’s network for all medical care, except in certain limited circumstances.
  • Like most Medicaid beneficiaries, individuals with HIV are required to receive their care through a managed care plan. You may change your coverage to a Medicaid HIV Special Needs Plan (such as CHOICE SelectHealth) at any time. However, other changes in your enrollment may only be made at designated times.
  • Newborns of a mother enrolled in CHOICE SelectHealth will automatically be enrolled in that same plan. The infant may be disenrolled at any time at the mother’s request.
  • If you wish to apply for CHOICE SelectHealth, be sure to check and make sure the primary care provider you choose participates in the CHOICE SelectHealth provider network and is available to provide you with care.
 
After you enroll in CHOICE SelectHealth you will still need your Medicaid Benefit Card for services such as outpatient chemical dependence treatment that are not covered by the plan.
