PLATTSBURGH, N.Y.– May 23, 2019 – Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP) is proud to bring a new, affordable health care option to residents of the North Country.

CDPHP today cut the ribbon to its newest location in Plattsburgh, NY. Here, shoppers can meet face-to-face with a CDPHP customer service representative, get answers to their health care questions, enroll in free or low-cost health insurance, schedule doctor and dentist appointments, receive insurance ID cards, and much more.

“We are extraordinarily proud to bring our award-winning health care coverage to residents of the North Country,” said CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John Bennett. “The opening of our Plattsburgh office further cements our commitment to this community, and our promise to uphold our mission of high-quality, cost-effective care, and superior customer service.”

“This new CDPHP location will be a great resource for health care consumers in our region,” said NYS Senator Betty Little, a member of the Senate’s Health Committee. “We all know navigating the health care system can be challenging. Having the opportunity to sit down and talk with someone face-to-face is often the best means of getting clear answers and working through complicated decisions. With CDPHP in this community, they’ll be able to offer that kind of service and more.”

“CDPHP is an innovative, highly-acclaimed insurer whose North Country expansion will create new choices for employers and families. The opening of their Plattsburgh office will expand access to affordable, quality health care and strengthen our region’s health care system.” said NYS Assemblyman Billy Jones.

“I am grateful that CDPHP can expand their presence in the North Country to assist our residents in their health care choices. Nothing these days is more complicated than health care, and few things are more important. To have a group such as this recognize the need for outreach and health care education, in tandem with health care provision, is a tremendous boon to our community.” said Plattsburgh City Mayor, Colin Read.

"We thank CDPHP for their confidence in and commitment to the North Country," said Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. "Their presence in this market adds choice and competition and that's positive for employers and everyone. At the North Country Chamber, we are pleased to also offer CDPHP plans through our health insurance service."

Last summer, CDPHP – ranked #1 in J.D. Power’s member health plan study three years in a row – announced it was expanding into Clinton, Franklin, Essex, and Warren Counties.

CDPHP offers members access to an expansive national network that includes more than 825,000 doctors, specialists, and nurses across the country. And, because the health plan understands that access to high-quality health care can be challenging in rural communities, it offers access to Doctor on Demand, the nation’s top-rated telemedicine app which provides live, video doctor visits 24/7.
