New York’s Fully Integrated Duals Advantage (FIDA) demonstration program ends December 31, 2019, for all enrollees. You may either change your coverage immediately or remain in FIDA for the remainder of the calendar year and make a new plan selection for 2020. Regardless of whether you want your new coverage to take effect immediately or on January 1, 2020, plan selections must be made by December 2019. For information on your long-term care coverage options after FIDA ends, see our Medicare Interactive toolkit or contact the Independent Consumer Advocacy Network (ICAN).
Note: You may continue to use FIDA for people with Intellectual or Developmental
Disabilities (FIDA-IDD) coverage in 2020.
