I’m a retired plumber from Coxsackie, NY with a laundry list of health conditions, not the least of which is blindness. A few years ago after suffering a stroke, I signed up for health insurance coverage through CDPHP. Not long after enrolling, I got a call from a CDPHP nurse who said I was overdue for a colonoscopy.
Let me repeat that, my health insurer called to say I was overdue for a cancer screening, and even offered to help me schedule an appointment. I was pleasantly surprised by the gesture and took her up on the offer.
Vacation season is here. A time of year when we get away from the grind and make memories with family. It gives us a chance to breathe and refresh before we return to our daily lives and get back to work.
Likewise, a federal tax that has a big impact on health care costs has been on vacation. Unfortunately, it came back, and health care consumers are about to feel the hit.
Choosing the right primary care doctor is an important decision, but it’s not always an easy one. That is why for the third year in a row, CDPHP is releasing its 2019 Top Doctors report, which details which primary care practices meet our plan’s rigorous standards for quality, efficiency, and patient satisfaction.
Yet another legislative session is coming to a close in Albany. The idea of a single payer health care system was much discussed this session, and will likely continue as a health care topic when the legislature reconvenes in 2020. When the debate resumes, let’s hope everyone takes a moment to examine the Realities of Single Payer, as outlined in this informational video.
Everyone deserves access to high quality health care. But a single payer system? That’s bad for New Yorkers.
The New York Health Act would wipe out our current system and replace it with a government-run, one-size-fits-all approach to care. Meaning, politicians and government bureaucrats decide what’s covered, and what’s not!
To learn more about the Realities of Single Payer, check out this podcast featuring CDPHP director of strategic communications, Ali Skinner.
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.
