Making Good on Our Promise

About a year ago, you may recall that I made a promise to the community. I promised to continue fighting for affordability, advocating for price transparency, and working alongside local doctors and employers to provide the best care at the best price.

Today, I am proud to say that CDPHP® is making good on that promise, and I’d like to show you how.

While the CDPHP Promise is a corporate commitment, it’s something I take very personally.

As you all know, the past few years have been challenging for our industry, as we’ve endured some of the most sweeping changes to the American health care system. Through it all, CDPHP has remained committed to the mission, vision, and values in which this company was founded. More importantly, we remained committed to you.

As we head further into 2018, my promise is to continue providing you and your loved ones with the highest level of care and customer service, all at the most affordable price. That’s what I call #TheCDPHPDifference!
