Medicare and Managed Long-Term Care Plans

Healthfirst Medicare Advantage plans provide all the benefits and services that Original Medicare does, plus a whole lot more—for less. We offer a variety of plans to meet your needs, with benefits such as prescription drug coverage; over-the-counter allowance; dental, hearing, and vision benefits; the SilverSneakers® fitness program; 24/7 access to care via phone or video chat; and the option to go out of network for care.

Healthfirst Long-Term Care plans provide health benefits that help you (or your loved one) remain at home and as independent as possible. We offer plans that combine hospital, medical, and prescription drug coverage with long-term care benefits, as well as a stand-alone managed long-term care plan option. Our long-term care plans provide access to a care management team, which includes a primary care manager and other support staff that will help you develop your own personal care plan centered around your care goals, and coordinate the services you need in order to meet your care goals. Together, they will help you (or your loved one) with your day-to-day needs and coordinate care with you, your doctor, and your family.


Healthfirst offers a variety of plans designed to meet your unique needs. See below for plan details or call us for more information.

See Description
  • Deductible

    The amount you must pay in covered expenses each year before your plan or program pays anything for certain covered services. The deductible may not apply to all services. There may be different deductibles for different services (e.g., medical vs. pharmacy). Not all plans require deductibles. This is separate from a monthly premium payment. Example: If your deductible is $500, you need to spend $500 for covered healthcare services within one year before your plan or program will start paying for your health services. Your deductible resets once every year.

  • Extra Help

    A federal program to help people with limited income and resources pay Medicare prescription drug program costs like premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance.

  • Premium

    The amount you must pay monthly, quarterly, or twice a year to be covered by a health insurance plan or program.

  • SilverSneakers ©

    SilverSneakers is a Medicare fitness program that uses exercise and social opportunities to promote well-being among seniors.
