High and Standard Option Health Plans for Federal Employees

Federal employees who live or work in the Capital Region, Central New York, and Hudson Valley can participate in CDPHP Universal Benefits®, Inc. (CDPHP UBI).

High and Standard Option - Both plans share the same provider network. Out-of-pocket costs and premium rates vary.

Continuing in 2020: Self Plus One Enrollment!  If you only need coverage for yourself and one dependent (either a spouse or a child), you can select a plan type of “Self Plus One”, instead of the “Self and Family” plan 

  • Enhanced Primary Care (EPC)
    Enhanced Primary Care sites are your "Medical Home." CDPHP encourages members to have a medical home, that is, a doctor’s office that coordinates most of your care. This can be a primary care physician (PCP), or in the case of our Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) sites, a team of health care providers looking out for you. You can use Find-A-Doc to determine which offices are in the program. Indicate “Enhanced Primary Care” in Step Two when completing your search. The enhanced primary care icon will appear next to EPC-participating doctors’ names.

  • Rx for Less
    CDPHP members with prescription drug benefits can get deep discounts on specific generic drugs when purchased at any CVS, Target, Walmart, Price Chopper/Market 32, Hannaford or Shop-Rite pharmacy.

  • Telemedicine by Doctor on Demand!
    Connect with a doctor from your phone, tablet, or computer 365 days a year, 24/7. Through live video, meet with a board-certified doctor anytime you need. The doctor can discuss your medical and/or mental health history, review symptoms, recommend treatment, and prescribe medication if needed. So there are no surprises, at the beginning of each visit you’ll be told how much you have to pay out of pocket. A Doctor On Demand visit cost is the same as what you pay when you see your doctor for a sick visit. Visit www.doctorondemand.com to learn more.

Note: These services are neither offered nor guaranteed under contract with the FEHB Program, but are made available to all enrollees and family members who become members of CDPHP UBI.
