Medicare benefit plan changes for 2019

For Medicare coverage effective January 1, 2019, the annual open enrollment period runs from October 15, 2018 to December 7, 2018. Please talk to your patients about their coverage needs and budget considerations. EmblemHealth is offering three new plans and improved plan options with reduced cost-sharing and additional benefits. Our new VIP Go plan, a point-of-service plan, does not require referrals. Our Medicare service area now includes Dutchess, Sullivan, Ulster, and Putnam counties. All plans will use the VIP Prime Network. The Essential Network and the Medicare Cost Plan are both being retired at the end of 2018. More
