What is VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Classic (HMO)?
If you have Medicare and live in New York, VNSNY CHOICE Medicare can help you get more of the healthcare benefits and savings you deserve.
CHOICE Medicare Classic is designed for people with Medicare who have limited income and resources and are getting Extra Help. Like all of our Medicare plans, CHOICE Medicare Classic is designed to help you save as much as possible on the medical services you need and comes with EXTRA benefits that don't cost extra.
This plan offers the benefits of Original Medicare (doctor and hospital and coverage) plus:
- Prescription drug coverage
- $0 copays for primary care doctor visits*
- Vision, dental, and hearing coverage
- OTC (over-the-counter) items, up to $120 per year
- Worldwide coverage for emergency and urgent care
- SilverSneakers® health club membership
- 24/7 nurse hotline support
- And more!
VNSNY CHOICE Medicare has a large network of providers—including primary care doctors, specialists, nurses, healthcare professionals (such as audiologists, podiatrists or optometrists) and others—whom you can go to for covered services. And our extensive pharmacy network includes independent neighborhood stores as well as national chains.
For CHOICE Medicare Classic members whose needs require care coordination, the plan also provides a Care Manager — usually a Registered Nurse — who works with a team of healthcare professionals to manage and coordinate your care and support services.
This plan has a monthly premium of $41.00 that can be covered by LIS for members who get Extra Help.
