What is VNSNY CHOICE FIDA COMPLETE (MEDICARE-MEDICAID PLAN)?
One health plan that combines all Medicare and Medicaid coverage — plus extra benefits — for people who need long term care. All at $0 cost.
For New Yorkers who need long term care, VNSNY CHOICE now offers a health plan that’s not only more all-inclusive than any plan we’ve ever offered, but also makes life a little simpler. Instead of two separate plans to keep track of, you have one combined Medicare-Medicaid plan, with one I.D. card and one phone number to call for all your health plan needs. So it’s easier to manage your benefits and providers.
Complete is the perfect name for this plan. It includes all Medicare services; all Medicaid services, including long term care; plus complete prescription drug benefits. There is $0 cost to you. $0 premiums, $0 copays, $0 deductibles. Including prescription drugs!
There will be almost no disruption in your care.
When you transition to CHOICE FIDA Complete, you can stay with the all the doctors and other providers you have now, as long as they’re part of the plan. In fact, for the first 90 days you’re on the plan, all your services will stay exactly as they are today.
Of course, if you’re already a CHOICE plan member, you don’t have to worry about any of this. You’ll still be in the care of the Visiting Nurse Service of New York—the company you know and that knows you!
FIDA With a Difference
VNSNY CHOICE is not the typical health plan company. We’re part of the Visiting Nurse Service of New York—the largest not-for-profit home health organization in America. And we share their great mission of care and service to those most in need.
What that means for you is simple: at VNSNY CHOICE, members come first. Here, decisions about your care are made by clinicians, not by clerks. We are dedicated to helping our members live safely and independently in their homes and communities, where they belong.
