CDPHP Expands Further North, Offering Coverage in St. Lawrence, Lewis, and Jefferson Counties

ALBANY, N.Y. – November 24, 2020 – CDPHP is thrilled to announce the Albany, NY-based health plan is bringing its award-winning health coverage to even more residents of the North Country, with an expansion into St. Lawrence, Lewis, and Jefferson counties. CDPHP expands to the North

Building off the success of its most recent expansion into Clinton, Franklin, Essex, and Warren counties – in which the plan added 10,000 new members to its roster – CDPHP is now offering commercial health insurance coverage to even more residents in northern New York.

“Residents of the North Country deserve better options,” said CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John D. Bennett. “The response from our last expansion was tremendous, so we’re taking the CDPHP logo even further north, offering high-quality care and superior customer service in St. Lawrence, Lewis, and Jefferson counties,” added Bennett.

CDPHP members enjoy access to an expansive national network*, which includes more than 825,000 doctors, specialists, and nurses across the country, providing access to superior health care coverage virtually anywhere in the United States.

“CDPHP understands that access to health care services is challenging for rural communities. That is why we are proud to partner with the nation’s top-rated telemedicine apps to offer members access to live, video-based doctor appointments, 24/7.” added Bennett.

The expansion into St. Lawrence, Lewis, and Jefferson counties is effective immediately.

*The national network is provided by CDPHP Universal Benefits, Inc. The national network does not extend to members of the Federal Employees Health Benefit Plan, or the Medicare Choices PPO plans. Members of the HMO plan, which is insured by Capital District Physicians' Health Plan, Inc. (CDPHP) are also not eligible for the national network.
