Original Medicare coverage is good, but it can be hard to manage multiple plans, ID cards, bills and networks. With a Medicare Advantage plan from a private company like EmblemHealth, you can get what you need from a single plan.


Having a Medicare Advantage plan means that you will still get all the benefits of Medicare Parts A and B; plus, you’ll get extra benefits—often for no more than what you already pay each month for Part B.

Extra benefits

Dental care

Eye exams and prescription lenses

Fitness programs

Hearing aids and exams for fittings

Prescription drug coverage


You can join an EmblemHealth Medicare Advantage plan if:

  •  You are eligible for Medicare Part A and are enrolled in Medicare Part B (continue to pay your part B premium). And
  •  You live in EmblemHealth’s service area. EmblemHealth's Service Area includes the following counties in New York: Albany, Broome, Bronx, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Rensselaer, Richmond, Rockland, Saratoga, Schenectady, Suffolk, Sullivan, Warren, Washington, Westchester and Ulster.
