There’s no shortage of critics lining up to lambaste our nation’s health care system. And I’ll admit, I’ve often been first in line. But amidst the noise and rhetoric swirling over things like high-cost drugs and a lack of affordable coverage, one health care program is proving to be a huge success.
Ernesto Acosta’s family is still rebuilding in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Despite the destruction back at home in Puerto Rico, the medical student – who hopes to become an orthopedic surgeon – remains focused on his studies at Albany Medical College where he is the proud recipient of the John H. Carter scholarship, established in honor of the late Dr. John Carter, a founder of CDPHP.
As the dust begins to settle following one of the most hotly contested midterms in American history, many are now asking – what’s next for health care?
The industry has been under the microscope for more than a decade. With Democrats now in control of every branch of state government, industry leaders are wondering what the party has planned for its newfound power.
From skyrocketing costs to lack of transparency, it’s easy to identify the problems plaguing today’s health care system. With all the negative news out there, it’s important to celebrate the positive. Here in New York, the Essential Plan has become a shining star and proven its ability to provide high-quality, affordable health care coverage to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable state residents.
From handshakes to headlines, what we see, how we feel, and the way we think about something or someone is often determined in a matter of seconds. So you can imagine my concern (outrage, really) when I recently woke up to read the headline, “Single Payer Financially Feasible in NY.”
If you took the time to actually read the article, which was based on a recent RAND study, you would almost certainly conclude that single-payer – a system in which the government runs your health care – would not only obliterate the state’s economy, but would have grave effects on the quality of care you receive in New York.
As a health plan that truly puts our members first, CDPHP is proud to announce that for the second year in a row we’ve ranked “Highest in Member Satisfaction among Commercial Health Plans in New York” by J.D. Power.*
