Schenectady, N.Y., September 25, 2018—MVP Health Care has expanded its Medicare Advantage plan offerings to residents in six additional counties in New York State and eight additional counties in Vermont.  MVP’s plans are consistently rated 4.5 out of 5 stars overall by Medicare and are ranked “2018 Best Plans” in New York and Vermont by U.S. News and World Report.

New York expansion counties include Chemung, Delaware, Jefferson, Schuyler, Sullivan, and Rockland. Vermont expansion counties include Caledonia, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, Orange, Orleans, Windham, and Windsor.

“This is great news for Medicare beneficiaries in these counties who have been asking for MVP Medicare Advantage plans for a long time,” says Patrick Glavey, MVP’s executive vice president, Medicare programs. ”We listened and are excited to offer MVP Medicare Advantage plans for the first time in their area.”

Throughout the year, MVP hosts free Medicare Group Discussions and provides in-person and over-the-phone assistance to help Medicare beneficiaries better understand Medicare and choose health coverage that best fits their needs. These services will also be offered in the new Vermont and New York expansion counties.

“Choosing a Medicare plan is a very personal decision,” says Glavey, “and we know that people have a lot of questions about coverage and benefits as they consider what’s right for them. We’re headed to small towns and big cities in Vermont this fall to give Vermonters the opportunity to visit our MVP Mobile Enrollment Center as it travels throughout the state.” The Mobile Enrollment Center will make stops in communities such as White River Junction, St. Johnsbury, and Newport. During the stops, Vermont residents can have an in-person consultation with a member of MVP’s team of Medicare experts in the comfort of the Mobile Enrollment Center’s office space.

A full listing of Medicare Group Discussion locations and the MVP Mobile Enrollment Center tour stop schedule can be found at joinMVPMedicare.com.
