Independent Health’s Plans for NYSHIP Members

NYSHIP

There are two 2015 plan options for you to consider:

  • HMO (with pharmacy) – This plan is right for you if you are looking for a rich benefit design with easy copays. There is no deductible that needs to be met before you are responsible for paying a copay. This plan also includes easy copays for prescription drug coverage.
  • HMO (without pharmacy) – This plan is right for you if you are looking for a rich benefit design with easy copays. There is no deductible that needs to be met before you are responsible for paying a copay. This plan does not include prescription drug coverage.

Contact your employee benefits department for information related to your summary of benefits coverage.
