Fast-Growing NY Insurer Credits MA Benefit Stability, Behavioral Health Focus

CDPHP, a not-for-profit managed care organization serving Medicare Advantage members primarily in Upstate New York and the Hudson Valley, is one of several provider-led insurers that carried a strong growth trajectory from the Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP) through the Open Enrollment Period (OEP) in the first quarter of 2024, according to a recent AIS Health analysis.

The Albany-based insurer added more than 5,000 MA members during the AEP and another 5,400 between February and May, for overall growth of 20% since October, per AIS’s Directory of Health Plans. According to CDPHP’s senior vice president and chief growth officer, Nicholas Kraft, the plan nabbed 66% of new enrollment in its market and is now the third-fastest growing MA plan in the U.S. CDPHP was also ranked No. 1 in member satisfaction among commercial insurers in New York State by J.D. Power & Co.
