About the City’s Other Plan
There has been little discussion of the City’s other Medicare plan. Here’s why: that other plan is a Medicare HMO offered by HIP. HMO means:
  • You can only use HIP’s in-network Medicare providers in NYC and 5 suburban counties.
  • You can’t go outside the network and you can’t go outside those 10 counties
  • You can’t go to a specialist without a referral from your primary doctor.
  • $30 for a specialist
  • $100 for an Emergency Room visit. Maximum out of-pocket for medical and hospitalization: $3,400 a year.
  • Medicare Part D (prescription drug) annual premium: $2,131.
We do not have an HMO. We have two nationwide Medicare PPO options. Your choice of Medicare-registered doctors and hospitals. No referrals required. Prescription drug annual premium: $0. And your choice of ZERO CO-PAY for medical and hospitalization or modest copays with full reimbursement of the standard Medicare Part B premium.
