In today’s fast-paced world, we’re pretty used to getting what we want, when we want it. Information is readily available in the palm of your hand day or night (what did we do before Google?!) and packages are sent directly to your door in less than 24 hours. Want food from your favorite restaurant but don’t want to leave home? There are SO many apps to help with that. Want to watch a movie without leaving your couch? No problem. Need groceries but don’t have time to run to the store? Yup, that’s easy, too. Most of your favorite products and entertainment can be delivered in an instant with a touch of a button on your phone. Even health care has followed suit with services like live video doctor visits (CDPHP® members can use Doctor On Demand!).
But when it comes to seeing a doctor in-person, we need to hit the “pause” button instead of “order now” and know realistic times to receive care.
I’ll probably get in trouble for writing this, but I need to say it…health insurance is confusing.
Okay, maybe that’s not a groundbreaking statement by any means. But let’s be real here. This whole health care coverage thing still isn’t the easiest to navigate.
It doesn’t matter how educated you are or how much experience you have, no one has it all figured out. Sometimes when you hear people talking about their health insurance, it can even sound like the words are from some kind of alternate universe.
‘Tis the season – for drinking hot chocolate, building snowmen and… getting sick? Unfortunately, yes. During colder months especially, when windows are shut and fresh air is less readily available, germs really circulate. However, there are several effective ways to minimize the spread of illness. continue reading →
As embarrassing as this is to admit, before working at CDPHP, I really had no idea how my health insurance company could help me with my health. All I knew is that I paid a bill each month, then I’d have health care coverage when I needed it – that was about it.
Now, as a CDPHP employee, my eyes have completely opened to all of the “extra” programs and services that members have access to. Health insurance companies have come a long way over the years. They aren’t here to only help you when you’re sick, but they’re here by your side when you’re healthy, too. With CDPHP health plans, members can receive gym reimbursements, video chat with a doctor from the comfort of their home, get discounts on prescriptions at the pharmacy, join a step challenge, and even try an African dance class!
Warm weather, sunshine, trips to the beach, more time outside, pools, ice cream – can summer get any better?!
Yes, in fact – if you’re a CDPHP member!
This summer, CDPHP members can receive exclusive discounts to a variety of Capital Region events, hot-spots, and more.
