Insurance Coverage

As a result of rules governing health insurance coverage implemented by the Affordable Care Act, and the launch of the New York State Health Exchange, there has been a great deal of confusion about which plans specific hospitals accept.

The following details all of the insurance products and plans which NYU Winthrop Hospital accepts. Please keep in mind that there is a difference between ‘plan’ and ‘product’. People are sometimes confused when they select a certain insurance carrier and find out that a particular provider does not accept a specific product of that carrier or plan. NYU Winthrop will attempt to work with carriers on a case by case basis to negotiate payment for plans we don’t participate with.

As of September 2019, NYU Winthrop Hospital has contracts with the following managed care health plans.

This list is updated periodically and subject to change. It may not be comprehensive. Please check with your health plan to verify coverage.

Please be advised that there may be certain services provided in our facilitity which are not covered by your plan. Please inquire with your health plan before calling to schedule an appointment.

Please note that your health plan may require you to obtain a referral from your primary care provider before being seen by our specialists.
