What is VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth?
If you’re living with HIV/AIDS and/or live in a HRA shelter and are eligible for Medicaid, there’s a special health plan from the Visiting Nurse Service of New York that's designed to serve your needs. It’s VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth, a Medicaid HIV Special Needs Plan (SNP) dedicated to providing you with the level of care that can help you improve your health and your quality of life.
CHOICE SelectHealth is committed to providing the most effective care by offering all the services you may already be receiving with Medicaid—or with your current managed care plan—and providing additional services important to people with HIV/AIDS.
The plan provides easy access to a wide variety of specialists in HIV and other fields of medicine like cardiology, dermatology, pulmonary medicine or endocrinology. Our specialty provider network is available to all members, at many of New York’s leading medical centers as well as other NYSDOH Designated AIDS Centers.
You may be eligible to receive the special care and services of CHOICE SelectHealth if you live in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan or Queens. If you qualify, your children may also join the plan and receive their healthcare, even if they do not have HIV or AIDS.
