Our plans also have 24/7 Nurse and Pharmacy lines, in case you have a question after-hours. Check the back of your ID card for these numbers.

Preventive Care Screenings to Stay Your Healthiest

Many of our Medicare Advantage plans include preventive and routine care, such as dental, vision, and hearing exams, and health screenings like colonoscopies. These benefits help you maintain your health, especially if you catch issues early on while they are easy to treat.

Make a Caregiver Account

If you’re providing care and support to someone with an Empire Medicare plan, you can make a caregiver account. This allows you to access that person’s care in one easy place – online. You can find doctors and hospitals, manage medications, pay bills and more, on behalf of the person for whom you’re caring.

To make a caregiver account, first log in to the member’s account. Then, designate yourself as a caregiver in the Privacy & Access section of the member’s profile.

Something Not Quite Right?

We hope you're always happy with your coverage. But if there's something that's not quite right, please contact us and we'll do our best to help fix the situation.
