Part of MJHS Health System

One of the many advantages of being an Elderplan/HomeFirst member is that we are part of the MJHS Health System family that includes: MJHS Home Care, MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care, as well as MJHS Isabella and MJHS Menorah Centers for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care. So, if you need access to additional support over time, and choose to receive services from MJHS, your Elderplan team can work together with their colleague from across the system to better coordinate your care and make it easier for you.

Elderplan realizes that staying healthy is not always as easy as seeing the doctor or taking medications as prescribed. Unfortunately, gaps in access to quality health care based on race, ethnicity and financial stability are still all too often a factor. Consistent with our values, Elderplan is leading the way to great care by being committed to health equity, to closing these gaps in care, and ensuring that all our members have access to high-quality programs and services.

Elderplan MAP is the only 5-Star plan in New York State. This is the highest rating a plan can achieve.*  The New York State Department of Health rates and rewards MAP plans based on their performance on quality measures related to patient safety, preventive screenings, quality of life, satisfaction, and overall health status.
