CDPHP Rated Top Plan In New York State By U.S. News & World Report/NCQA America's Best Health Insurance Plans 2009-10*

CDPHP Commercial, HMO, Self-Funded, Medicare, and Medicaid Plans Recognized Among The Nation's Top 25

Albany, N.Y. (Vocus) November 16, 2009 -- Underscoring its 25-year commitment to providing quality health care services at a reasonable cost, CDPHP® was ranked as the top-rated health plan in New York state, according to the recently released, U.S. News & World Report/NCQA America's Best Health Insurance Plans 2009-10* . Five CDPHP plans were among the top 25 health plans in the nation encompassing commercial, self-funded, and government programs populations across New York state.

"In light of all of the negative health care reform rhetoric, it is refreshing to be recognized for the hard work we do every day to ensure our members have access to high quality benefits, preventive care, and outstanding customer service," said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. "This honor clearly illustrates our commitment to partnering with our employers, members, and providers through collaborative care initiatives."

Scoring was based on several factors, including clinical quality, member satisfaction, and NCQA accreditation scores. The CDPHP plans cited among the nation's top plans in the report include:
Commercial Plans

  • Ranked #14: CDPHP Universal Benefits,® Inc.
  • Ranked #15: CDPHP HMO
  • Ranked #23: CDPHN

Medicare Plans
  • Ranked #10: CDPHP Medicare Choices

Medicaid Plans:
  • Ranked #6: CDPHP Select Plan

"While CDPHP consistently ranks among the nation's best plans, it is even more satisfying this year as virtually all of our plans are recognized," said Bennett. "This further exemplifies how a regional, not-for-profit physician-based health plan like CDPHP is ideally equipped to offer a universal health care solution for all New Yorkers."

NCQA is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to improve health care quality. The organization measures and reports on various aspects of performance and offers a range of accreditation and certification programs for different entities and individual physicians. Consumers can easily determine health plans' NCQA accreditation status and other information on health care quality by accessing NCQA's Web site at or by calling NCQA's customer support center at (202) 955-5697.

The rankings will appear in the December 1, 2009 issue of U.S. News & World Report. For additional details regarding the Plan's performance on HEDIS and CAHPS measures, visit
