What is VNSNY CHOICE Medicare EasyCare Plus (HMO D-SNP)?

CHOICE EasyCare Plus is a Medicare Advantage plan for New Yorkers who have both Medicare and Medicaid. It offers more than regular Medicare, including extra benefits that can make it easier to live a healthy lifestyle in your home and community.

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.

And, CHOICE EasyCare Plus has $0 monthly premium and $0 copays (depending on your level of Medicaid eligibility) for most healthcare services.

EasyCare Plus 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. 

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