Continuing its commitment to provide access to affordable health care to millions of uninsured Americans, CDPHP® today submitted its application for participation in the New York Health Benefit Exchange.

“CDPHP is well-positioned to provide high-quality, affordable health care coverage through the New York Health Benefit Exchange,” said Dr. John D. Bennett, president and CEO, CDPHP. “In many ways, we began the process of health care reform thirty years ago when we created a physician-guided, not-for-profit health plan. Today, we are continuing that journey with our participation in the Exchange and our commitment to developing innovative products and services that will lead to better health, better care, and lower costs,”

Under the Affordable Care Act, state-based exchanges are being created to provide a new and competitive marketplace where families, individuals, and small businesses can compare products, calculate costs, and purchase health insurance.
