Gold Plans

Plans offered at the gold level include Healthy NY Gold, iDirect Gold, iDirect Gold Coinsurance, NY/PA Gold, Passport Plan Gold, Choice Plus Gold and Prime Access Gold. These plans provide a variety of options including out-of-network coverage and provider choice, while still providing lower out-of-pocket costs as compared to other metal tiers.

From a deductible plan like iDirect Gold, to our innovative tailored provider network plans including Choice Plus Gold and Prime Access Gold, most plans offer a $250 primary care office visit allowance, as well as the NY Standard Gym Benefit, or the choice between our nutrition benefit and our personalBest! health and wellness benefit.

Coming Soon for 2015! Choice Plus® will now offer the advantage of an expanded, high-performing physician network – with physicians from The Primary Connection®. Learn more
