About Us

We are a mission-driven health plan from VNS Health providing quality care for New Yorkers.

Our Organization

For more than 125 years, New Yorkers have known us as the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. Through all those years, we’ve been committed to helping our neighbors. Like the communities we serve, we have also changed and grown.

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

Our Health Plans

To make it easier to understand that we are part of one organization, our VNSNY CHOICE health plans have changed their names to include VNS Health.  

What hasn’t changed is our commitment to your health and well-being. That commitment includes connecting you with the high-quality care you deserve. 

We still have our longstanding relationships with leading physician groups, doctors in private practice, hospital systems, pharmacies, and other providers.

Our members still benefit from our deep experience caring for people at all stages of life and our particular skill in caring for adults, including those with multiple health conditions.

We understand health care journeys have their ups and downs. Our Care Teams are always ready to help our members navigate life’s surprising health care challenges, whenever they may occur.

Just Some of the Reasons Why We Stand Out

Expert, Personal Support

When you join one of our plans, you can count on us being here for you, whether you need a little help staying healthy — or a lot.

Looking to live a little healthier or maybe just maintain good health? We’ll connect you to a health coach who can support you. Have complex care needs? Your care manager, who can be a nurse or a social worker, will advocate for you and coordinate your care and services.

Everyone’s health needs are different. Our Care Teams are dedicated to getting you the care that’s right for you.

Deep Roots in the Communities We Serve

We are your neighbors — New Yorkers supporting New Yorkers. We live and work in the communities we serve. Our team of health care experts reflects the diversity of New York’s cultures, languages, and lifestyles.

We are part of New York’s health care fabric and a trusted champion for our members and their health.

Whether you have Medicare alone or Medicare and Medicaid or you need help with daily activities to live safely in the comfort of your own home, we can help you choose the plan that’s right for you.
