What is VNSNY CHOICE Total?

VNSNY CHOICE Total is the only Medicaid Advantage Plus plan in New York to earn 5 stars from the New York State Department of Health.* More stars mean better health plan performance with 5 stars being the best. This rating is based on the quality of care and member satisfaction with the care and services received. 

If you need long-term help with daily activities to live safely at home, it's no longer necessary to have separate Medicare and Medicaid plans to cover all of your benefits. At VNSNY CHOICE Total, we have a plan option that combines Medicare and Medicaid Long-Term Care benefits into one easy-to-use health plan. You get:

  • One plan instead of two — with one phone number, one ID card, and one care management team
  • $0 cost for your health care, including $0 premiums and $0 copays**
  • Unlimited transportation to medical appointments (to plan-approved locations)
  • OTC (over-the-counter) items of up to $1,200 a year ($100 a month)
  • The long-term services and supports you need to live safely and independently in your home (such as Home Health Aide, nursing, social work, and more)
  • 24/7 Nurse Support Line
  • And much more
Your Care Is Coordinated
VNSNY CHOICE Total includes many features specifically designed for individuals who have special health care needs and require supportive services in order to remain safely at home. When you join VNSNY CHOICE Total, your care team will work with you and your doctor to coordinate your care and to help you get all of the benefits you are entitled to.
