Empire MediBlue HMO Plans In New York


MediBlue HMO plans are Medicare Advantage plans that offer the benefits of a health maintenance organization (HMO) plan, including lower monthly premiums and lower out-of-pocket costs.


When considering Empire MediBlue plans, you have the option to choose a Medicare preferred provider organization (PPO) or Medicare HMO plan. Learn more about Medicare Advantage plans with Empire, including the difference between HMO and PPO plans.

Is A Medicare HMO Plan Right For You?


When you choose a Medicare Advantage HMO plan, you can select a primary care provider (PCP) in the plan’s network. Your PCP provides your regular care and routine screenings. They also direct you to the right specialists when you need them.


Working with a regular doctor who understands your health history, medications, and unique healthcare needs has its advantages. Your PCP can recommend the healthcare expert or facility that will best meet your needs.
