New York City Region

New York City has many different plans available from many different companies. There are many HMO plans available along with some PPO plans as well. Many of the HMO plans offer little or no co-pays with many value added benefits such as dental, vision, health club memberships and medical transportation, however, as with most HMO's there may be a limited number of in network providers. USA Medicare solutions offers most major companies including but not limited to Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, HIP, AARP by Secure Horizons (United Healthcare) Aetna, Today's Options and GHI

In 2011 we usually have been recommending Blue Cross Blue Shield since they have the largest network and excellent benefits with very low or $0 co-pays for many services. Blue Cross Blue shield also offers a PPO plan for those who travel frequently or wish to have a greater freedom of choice (accepted by any doctor in or out of network). however we do also offer all other companies and somw may find that a different plan may fit their specific needs.

Long Island Region

Although there are some HMO plans are available in Suffolk county we would generally recommend a PPO due to the availability of medical providers.

GHI and Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield have the largest provider networks.

Central New York Region

The Central NY Region includes Syracuse, Utica and surrounding areas. In these areas, we have found that plans tend to change quite frequently. At this time some of the PFFS plans offered by Today's Options are a good option and Secure Horizons or Humana have pretty good plan choices, however this can change from year to year and you should call our toll free number to speak with a broker to obtain a recommendation for your zip code.

Southern Tier Region

The Southern Tier Region would include Allegheny Olean and surrounding areas. Since these are rural areas it would be advisable to seek a PPO or PFFS plan since there may be limited coverage with most HMO plans.

Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Plans In NY State are community rated and guarantee issue in most cases. Although this can be a more expensive option as compared to Medicare advantage, many Medicare Suppplement plans or Medigap plans will offer the most comprehensive coverage available.
