What is VNSNY CHOICE Medicare EasyCare (HMO)?

CHOICE EasyCare is a Medicare Advantage plan that offers more than regular Medicare, including extra benefits that can make healthy living easier.

A Reputation for Quality

Every year Medicare rates plans based on a 5-star rating system. More stars mean a better plan. VNSNY CHOICE Medicare is proud to be rated 4.5 out of 5 stars.

We created CHOICE EasyCare to make healthcare and healthy living more affordable for New Yorkers with Medicare. The monthly plan premium is as low as $0 for people who qualify for full Extra Help (also known as Low Income Subsidy).* And, the copay for primary care doctor visits is $10.

EasyCare members also get the peace of mind of knowing that we are part of an organization that has been taking care of New Yorkers for more than 128 years. You can count on us to be here to help you navigate life’s unexpected healthcare challenges whenever they may occur.  

*Covered by LIS if you get Extra Help. If you lose Extra Help, your monthly premium may be $25.

Every EasyCare member is automatically enrolled in our Healthy CHOICE Healthy You rewards program, where you earn reward dollars for taking certain actions to stay healthy.

More Than Regular Medicare

Regular Medicare covers a lot, but not everything. CHOICE EasyCare has important benefits that aren’t part of regular Medicare, including prescription drugs, dental, vision, hearing, and much more.


Extras for Healthy Living

EasyCare includes benefits to make healthy living easier and more affordable. These include:

  • Debit card you can use to buy over-the-counter health items — $45/quarter or up to $180/year. Use it in local stores or get easy home delivery.
  • SilverSneakers® — with gym memberships and virtual classes
  • Transportation to healthcare

Personal Support

With EasyCare, you get a Health Coach or Care Manager to help you be as healthy as possible. Our plan pharmacists can help make it easier for you to take the medications you need. You can have some doctors’ visits in the comfort of your home with our telehealth benefit. And you’ll have 24/7 access to a nurse for when health concerns arise.
