Find A Doctor

It is important for you to know which providers are a part of the VNSNY CHOICE FIDA Complete (Medicare-Medicaid Plan) network. In most circumstances, while you are a participant of our plan you must use network providers to get your medical care and services. Some exceptions include emergencies and urgently needed care when the network is not available (generally, when you are out of the area). Please see Chapter 3, Section E of your Participant Handbook/Evidence of Coverage for a list of out-of-network coverage rules.

How can I find out if a doctor is in the VNSNY CHOICE FIDA Complete network?
CHOICE has an extensive network of physicians that includes primary care doctors and other specialists.  It’s easy to find out if a particular doctor is in our network: 
  • Use the Provider Search tool on this website
  • Look in the listings in your Provider and Pharmacy Directory
  • Or call Participant Services at 1-866-783-1444 (TTY for the hearing impaired: 711), 7 days a week, 8 am- 8 pm.

Getting Care During a Disaster
If the Governor of New York, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, or the President of the United States declares a state of disaster or emergency in your geographic area, you are still entitled to care from your plan. Generally, during a disaster, you can obtain care from out-of-network providers at no cost to you. If you cannot use a network pharmacy during a disaster, you may be able to fill your prescription drugs at an out-of-network pharmacy. Please call Participant Services for more information. 

If you want help in choosing a doctor, please call Participant Services.
