About Us


Currently, VNSNY CHOICE offers seven health plan options to residents living within the VNSNY CHOICE area of service. Our two Long Term Care programs include:

  • VNSNY CHOICE MLTC - The benefits for this plan are provided by Medicaid.
  • VNSNY CHOICE Total - This plan combines the benefits of a Medicaid plan and a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan.  

Additionally, VNSNY CHOICE also offers a Special Needs Plan for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and their dependent children and are eligible for Medicaid.

  • VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth - This plan provides easy access to a wide variety of specialists in HIV and other fields of medicine, including cardiology, dermatology, pulmonary medicine or endocrinology.

Our four VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Advantage plans include all of the benefits available to you through Original Medicare, plus prescription drug coverage: 

  • VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Maximum - This is a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan (SNP) and is available to people who have Medicare and Medicaid. Plus, members also receive up to $1,440 ($120 per month) for over-the-counter health products. It combines a “Medicare Advantage” plan with a “Medicaid Advantage” benefit, and allows you to get your Medicaid services—such as dental care, vision care, and transportation to your appointments—from your VNSNY CHOICE plan.
  • VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Preferred - Like Medicare Maximum, this is a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan (SNP) and is available to people who have Medicare and Medicaid. Plus, members also receive up to $1,140 annually ($95 per month) for over-the-counter health products. 
  • VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Classic - This plan is an HMO and is available to people who have Medicare. Medicare Classic is designed for people who have limited income and resources. Members in this plan have a modest monthly premium, but it can be fully or partially subsidized by Medicaid. This plan also provides prescription drug coverage, with a low annual deductible and no or low co-pays for medical services. 
  • VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Enhanced - This plan is an HMO and is offered to people who have Medicare. It is designed to provide members with complete Medicare coverage (including Medicare prescription drug coverage), with zero and low out-of-pocket costs.
