MVP Health Care announces GoldAnywhere: a new Medicare Advantage PPO plan



Gary Hughes
October 15, 2008 - MVP Health Care is introducing a new type of Medicare Advantage health plan  GoldAnywhere -- a preferred provider organization (PPO) health plan. GoldAnywhere allows members to see any of the more than 5,500 physicians and hospitals in the MVP Gold network or any physician or hospital anywhere outside that network without a referral. GoldAnywhere also covers generic prescription drugs through the Medicare Part D donut hole for only a $5 copayment.

"At MVP we want our Gold members to be able to take on life and live well in the way that best suits their health care needs," said Patrick J. Glavey, MVP vice president for Medicare. "We designed GoldAnywhere for people who want the freedom to see any doctor anywhere, or get lower out-of-pocket costs when they see providers in the MVP network, and never have to worry about getting a referral from their health plan," he said.

GoldAnywhere also offers up to $300 annually for dental care, the SilverSneakers® Fitness Program at participating centers, and HealthDollarssm that members can use to pay for fees for fitness classes and activities (such as yoga classes, therapeutic massage, golf, bowling or other sports lessons, even Meals on Wheels).

GoldAnywhere is available in the following counties: Albany, Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Columbia, Dutchess, Fulton, Greene, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Oneida, Onondaga, Orange, Oswego, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Tioga, Ulster, Warren and Washington.
