What is VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Preferred?
If you live in New York, VNSNY CHOICE Medicare can help you get more of the healthcare savings and benefits you deserve.
CHOICE Medicare Preferred is designed for people with Medicare who are eligible for some level of assistance from New York State Medicaid. This plan has a monthly premium as low as $0 (depending on your Medicaid eligibility) and lots of EXTRA benefits.
Like all of our Medicare plans, CHOICE Medicare Preferred is designed to help you save as much as possible on the medical services you need. This plan offers the benefits of Original Medicare (doctor and hospital and coverage) plus:
- Prescription drug coverage
- $0 copays for doctor visits*
- Vision and dental coverage
- OTC (over-the-counter items) of up to $840 a year ($70 a month)
- Transportation to doctor visits (up to 16 one-way trips a year)
- Worldwide coverage for emergency and urgent care
- SilverSneakers® health club membership
- Nutrition counseling
- 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.
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.
