April 1, 2010

New York, NY (April 1, 2010) – Amida Care officially announces its name change (formerly VidaCare) – plus the Plan launches a NEW logo and website. The fresh website look and easier navigation are examples of quality enhancements. In addition, our Provider Network continues to grow with over 150 HIV PCP choices, over 6,000 specialists, more than 200 facilities and 28 hospital options. Our health promotion program continues to offer monthly workshops that support Member’s well-being and healthy relationships.

“Amida Care will include all the good things we created in VidaCare as well as new things like borough offices where Members can access support without ever leaving their borough/neighborhood. It’s a very exciting time. As a team, we’ve never been more committed to making health care work for our Members and their families,” said Amida Care CEO Doug Wirth.

To find out more about all the things we’re doing for Members and Providers, visit us at www.amidacareny.org to access new information, resources, and services that are being added all the time.

Amida Care’s mission is to provide access to comprehensive care and coordinated services that facilitate positive health outcomes and general well-being for our Members.
