Your Flex Card Benefits

When you become a member of VNS Health EasyCare Plus (HMO D-SNP) or VNS Health Total (HMO D-SNP), you get a Flex Card.* The Flex Card is a Prepaid MasterCard® that gives you extra money to help pay for utilities, dental, hearing, and vision expenses. You choose how you use it.

How it works

Your Flex Card receives money over time, which means you won’t have access to the full amount right away.  

The card balance does roll over after each quarter. This means you can collect money throughout the year to spend on a larger expense. However, be sure to use the money before the end of the year because it won’t roll over into the next year.  

For more information about whether an item or service will be covered, call 1-866-414-6715. (TTY: 711), 7 days a week, 8 am to 8 pm.


Your Flex Card gives you the flexibility to use it for any of these kinds of health care items and services. Be aware that the card can’t be used for other kinds of items or services. Call us if you have questions about whether an item or service will be covered.
