Bright Advantage (HMO)

This is our core plan in New York. As an HMO plan, value is driven by close coordination between Bright Health and our Care Partner, Mount Sinai Health System. This relationship helps lower the overall cost of care and is perfect for anyone who gets excited about not needing referrals. The $0 monthly premium makes our Bright Advantage plan attractive to those wanting to take advantage of our unique Care Partner model and low out-of-pocket maximum without spending extra on additional benefits.

What differentiates this plan are lower copayments for selected services and our lowest out-of-pocket maximum, which makes Bright Advantage Plus great for planners. In exchange for a small monthly premium, members receive extra benefits while cutting down on surprise costs.

Bright Advantage Flex (PPO)

As the name implies, this PPO plan type offers our members additional flexibility by adding a level of out-of-network coverage. Bright Advantage Flex provides freedom for those who may have a favorite specialist outside of Mount Sinai Health System's network or are more risk averse and want a Plan B in case of medical need away from their usual provider. With the $0 premium option, this plan is designed for those who value network flexibility over benefits such as comprehensive dental.

In exchange for a slightly higher monthly premium, the Bright Advantage Flex Plus plan comes with lower copays for selected services and the peace of mind of coverage that’s there when you need it.
