Health Plans

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) created VNSNY CHOICE in the 1990s to further its mission of care and compassion for New Yorkers in need. VNSNY is a trusted not-for-profit organization that has helped New Yorkers for over 125 years.

VNSNY CHOICE health plans are for people who have complex health needs, which include living with chronic illnesses, living with HIV, physical disabilities, or are of transgender experience, gender non-conforming or homeless.

As part of the VNSNY family, CHOICE can draw upon VNSNY’s unmatched clinical and care coordination expertise. Every day we make a difference for our members in helping to improve their health, independence, and quality of life.

Because VNSNY CHOICE is a not-for-profit organization, SelectHealth can focus first and foremost on our members’ health. At CHOICE health plans, decisions about our members’ care are made by clinicians, not by clerks.

Expert care

VNSNY CHOICE has special expertise in coordinating care for people with the complex health needs. Members are assigned a care manager who works with a team of healthcare professionals to see that the member’s care and support services are coordinated to achieve the best health outcomes.
