My partner's application for Family Health Plus (New York) was approved. Now he needs to choose a 'health plan' to enroll in. We have no idea how to choose one. Please help!

Today we got a letter for the Department of Social Services letting us know that my partner's application for Family Health Plus (New York) was accepted.
The letter states the following:
"Under Family Health Plus, you must enroll in a health plan for your medical services. Your health plan will be CALL 1-800-XXX-XXX."
My partner called the number and they offered him four health plans to choose from. They are:
-Affinity Health Plan
-Fidelis/NYS Catholic Health Plan
-Hudson Health Plan
My partner is a 29 year old male in good health. The plan will only be covering him as we are not married and I am currently insured.
How do we choose which plan is best for him? We're both totally new to this and want to make the best choice.
