HIP Health Plan of New York (HIP) is a HMO plan with a Medicare contract. Group Health Incorporated (GHI) is a PPO plan and a standalone  PDP with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in HIP and GHI depends on contract renewal. HIP and GHI are EmblemHealth companies.

All Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans agree to stay in the program for a full calendar year at a time. Benefits, formulary, pharmacy network, premium and/or copayments/coinsurance may change on January 1 of each year. Each year, plans can decide whether to continue to participate with Medicare Advantage or Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. A plan may continue in their entire service area (geographic area where the plan accepts members) or choose to continue only in certain areas. Also, Medicare may decide to end a contract with a plan. Even if your Medicare Advantage Plan or Prescription Drug Plan leaves the program, you will not lose Medicare coverage. If a plan decides not to continue for an additional calendar year, it must send you a letter at least 90 days before your coverage will end. The letter will explain your options for Medicare coverage in your area.

*Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-Star rating system. Star Ratings are calculated each year and may change from one year to the next.

The benefit information provided is a brief summary, not a complete description of benefits. For more information contact the plan. Limitations, copayments, and restrictions may apply. Benefits, formulary, pharmacy network, premium and/or copayments/coinsurance may change on January 1 of each year.

EmblemHealth Dual Eligible (HMO SNP) and EmblemHealth Dual Eligible (PPO SNP) plans are available to anyone who has both Medical Assistance from the State and Medicare. Premiums, copays, coinsurance, and deductibles may vary based on the level of Extra Help you receive. Please contact the plan for further details.
