CDPHP® Launches Health Care Reform Site
Resource Helps Businesses and Members Understand “What Does This Mean to Me?”
Albany, NY (Vocus) April 1, 2010
CDPHP® has launched a health care reform microsite at www. cdphp. com/healthcarereform (http://www. cdphp. com/healthcarereform) in an effort to help its constituents and the community-at-large understand the ramifications of the recently signed health care reform bill. The site will be updated regularly and aims to address the ways in which the new legislation will affect the communities CDPHP serves.
“For the past 18 months, our nation has been embroiled in a health care debate that has divided the country,” said John D. Bennett (http://www. cdphp. com/aboutCDPHP/bennett. aspx), MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. “The intense debate leading up to the passing of the health care bill caused a great deal of confusion and left uncertainty in the minds of many. CDPHP wants to help the community understand the bill and prepare for the many changes it will bring.”
The Web resource will break down the effects of the new legislation for both small and large businesses, and various CDPHP members (eg. commercial, Medicare, and state programs), as well as offer valuable links to pertinent Web resources. It will also allow visitors to subscribe to automatic notification updates.
“As a not-for-profit, physician-guided health plan, CDPHP will diligently continue its efforts to work with providers and employer groups to develop innovative ways to reduce costs while increasing quality,” added Bennett. “This new resource will support those ongoing efforts.”
Founded in 1984 as a physician-founded and guided health plan, CDPHP and its affiliates currently serve members in 24 counties throughout New York with a full family of products (http://www. cdphp. com/members/health_plans. aspx). In U. S.
