With a major storm brewing, CDPHP® wants to remind everyone that now is the time to go over their preparedness checklist.
At CDPHP, our primary focus during any emergency situation is to ensure that our members have access to needed care. Members in need of assistance should call the phone numbers listed on their member ID card. For urgent matters after business hours, members will be directed to CDPHP’s after-hours answering service. The service will contact on-call personnel. If needed, CDPHP will have on-call staff available around the clock.
For those with special health needs, it is especially important to have a plan in place before an emergency. Those with chronic illnesses need to take extra steps to ensure their safety.

CDPHP also works in partnership with the American Red Cross of Northeastern New York to raise the awareness of vital disaster readiness techniques. Be Red Cross Ready provides detailed steps for preparedness.
Upstate New Yorkers are no stranger to storms. Being prepared now is the best action to take. Even if the storm passes us by, winter is just around the corner.
