MetroPlus Health Plan Opens New Offices in Bronx

NEW YORK — MetroPlus Health Plan has opened new community offices in three locations in the Bronx, with official opening festivities planned for later this month and early August. The move represents the first time the health plan has established community offices in that borough.

MetroPlus Health Plan is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NYC Health + Hospitals. MetroPlus has over a half million New Yorkers as members.

“We are excited to expand access to our services in the Bronx,” said Seth Diamond, Chief Operating Officer of MetroPlus Health Plan. “While we already count many Bronx residents among our members, bringing health care directly to where New Yorkers live and work is a core part of our mission. Opening up these three community-based offices provides MetroPlus with a great opportunity to further serve the Bronx.”

MetroPlus community offices aim to serve both current members of MetroPlus and others who may be considering joining the plan. At these offices, members and potential members get questions answered about benefits and services. Staff can also facilitate health plan enrollment—or annual renewals for current MetroPlus members. Community offices also offer health screenings, partner with community organizations to conduct enrollment for the SNAP (Food Stamp) program, and host other events that allow individuals to improve their health and wellness.

The three sites are conveniently located at street level in the Bronx, with easy subway and bus service access:

Morrisania – 227A 167th Street, 10456
Monday – Friday: 9am – 6pm
Saturday: 10am – 6pm
Sunday: 11am – 3pm

Bathgate – 720 East Tremont Avenue, 10457
Monday – Friday: 9am – 7pm

Saturday: 10am – 6pm

The MetroPlus Bronx community offices offer support in English and Spanish, as well as other languages when needed.

In addition to Medicaid Managed Care, MetroPlus offers dozens of health plans, including Child Health Plus; several Medicare Plans; a Medicaid Special Needs Plan (SNP) for people with HIV and their families; a Long-Term Managed Care Plan; MetroPlus Gold, a plan exclusively for New York City employees; FIDA and HARP plans; and over 100 NY State of Health Marketplace products, including the new Essential Plans.
