Affinity Health Plan

  • Losing Your Health Plan? Affinity Has You Covered.

    December 16, 2015

    Losing your health plan unexpectedly can be stressful. The inconvenience of having to switch to new carriers, with the possibility of higher premiums, is a further cause of great concern and anxiety. This is the situation that about 200, 000 New Yorkers faced recently, when one of the most popular insurance choices on the New York State of Health Marketplace ceased to offer coverage.

    In the midst of a difficult situation, Affinity had them covered. We helped several thousand former Health Republic members make a smooth transition to an Affinity Qualified Health Plan that met their and their family’s needs, giving them peace of mind and continued affordable coverage.

    Having served the healthcare needs of New Yorkers for almost 30 years, Affinity offers affordable healthcare all former Health Republic members can trust, especially at times as confusing as these. Our experienced representatives were on stand-by to help guide them through the process of selecting a new plan and answer all their healthcare questions. Follow-ups were done and queries put to rest in a timely fashion.

    Former Health Republic members learned that Affinity offers some of the lowest monthly premiums on the Marketplace, a quality network of 30,000 providers – and growing! – as well as more than 85 of New York’s best hospitals, health care where you live and work. This gave them confidence in knowing they were choosing a plan they can depend on.

    They also learned about exciting changes in 2016: AffinityAccess 2.0. This non-standard plan offers all the great benefits of our standard AffinityAccess plan, but with added vision and dental adult benefits. For an additional $20 a month, members receive:

    • Annual teeth whitening service
    • Annual vision checkup
    • Two yearly dental cleanings
    • Dental X-rays

    Our goal at Affinity, as former Health Republic members can attest, is to help our members stay healthy. Our promise, is to work hard to make it easy for our members to get the care they need; giving them security and consistency.

    Take advantage of what other former members already have. Join one of the most affordable health care providers in New York City!
