Dear Member:


I am pleased to announce two new insurance programs specifically designed for members of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation.


We have partnered with MVP Health Care and Guardian Dental to offer NYWGF members a choice of three new comprehensive EPO insurance plan options and a comprehensive dental insurance program. The programs will be administered through USI Affinity, a market leader in association insurance programs.


Highlights of the new MVP Health Care medical program include:

  • Competitive rates for both independent contractors and groups (2 or more employees)
  • Choice of 3 new medical plans including an eligible Health Saving Account plan and a broad prescription drug coverage
  • Access to CIGNA HealthCare's extensive network of nearly 500,000 doctors and specialists, 5,000 hospitals and healthcare facilities; and MVP Health Care's strong regional network of more than 19,000 providers and 150 hospitals and facilities;
  • Flexibility to seek care from any network provider nationwide—without a referral
  • Comprehensive, top-quality plan designs from MVP Health Care, a carrier ranked among “America’s Best Plans” by U.S. News and World Report and rated as “Excellent” by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

Highlights of the Guardian Dental plans include:

  • 2 attractively priced plans with $750 and $1000 annual maximums, per person, for Preventive, Basic & Major Services
  • Both plans include additional orthodontia coverage of $500 per person
  • Unique Maximum Rollover Feature which allows members to roll over a portion of their unused annual maximum.
  • Stretch your coverage further by using the services of exclusive Guardian Preferred Provider dentists
