Flex Card Benefits

Your Flex Card Benefit

As a member of VNSNY CHOICE Total (HMO D-SNP), you get a Flex debit card—a pre-loaded MasterCard—that gives you up to $750 a year ($187.50 every three months), to help you pay for certain items above the maximum amount covered under your health plan.

Some examples of what you can use your Flex Card for:

Dental: If you have used your full dental benefit ($1,500) for the year and you need another procedure or item, like a cap or crown.

Vision: If you need contacts, lenses or frames that cost more than the $300 annual limit.

Hearing: If you need to replace a hearing aid after you’ve reached the limit of $700 per ear every three years.

Fitness: If you want to take a fitness class in your neighborhood not offered by SilverSneakers® or the plan.

Your Flex Card gives you flexibility to use it for items and services for any of these kinds of health care needs. Be aware that it 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.

Here are answers to other questions you might have about your Flex Card.
