Our Organization

For more than 125 years, New Yorkers have called our organization the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. Through all those years, we have had nonstop commitment to our neighbors. Like the communities we serve, we have changed and grown.

Today, our organization provides a full range of easy-to-access health care services, solutions, and health plans that put you in control of your health, and help you live your best life—at home and in your community. That is why we are now known as VNS Health.

CHOICE Health Plans

We are the health plans from VNS Health. Because we’re based New York City, we know the ins and outs of New York’s healthcare system and have longstanding relationships with leading physician groups, doctors in private practice, hospital systems, pharmacies, and other providers. We know from long experience that New York is a city of diverse ethnic and cultural communities, all deserving sensitive and culturally competent healthcare services.

We have deep experience caring for people at all stages of life, and particular expertise in caring for adults, including those with multiple or complex health conditions.

Our health plans are designed to work closely with both plan members and their healthcare providers to offer customized solutions that keep members’ health on track.

As part of the VNS Health family, we are able to draw upon unmatched breadth and depth of clinical expertise. We help our members navigate life’s surprising healthcare challenges whenever they may occur.
