Unique Program Wins Upstate NY IPA Diabetes Endorsement

The New York State Health Foundation has named IPA Capital District Physician Health Plans (CDPHP) one of the first health plans to achieve its new Diabetes Incentive Program Endorsement.

As a central component of the Foundation’s New York State Diabetes Campaign, NYSHealth's Diabetes Policy Center, along with national partner Bridges to Excellence, created the endorsement program to promote financial incentives to providers that drive excellence in diabetes care and outcomes.

"We will continue to design and implement innovative programs that help our members address and manage their health issues, " said Dr. John D. Bennett, president and CEO, CDPHP

CDPHP has been recognized for demonstrating excellence by offering personal health coaches and classes to members with diabetes, and supplying providers with comprehensive reports on diabetes measures that allow for comparison with colleagues.

The endorsement program is designed to help consumers, providers, and employers identify those health plans that encourage the best diabetes care by offering the most effective incentive and reward programs, as well as helping health plans make improvements to their existing programs.

"Unfortunately, not enough New Yorkers with diabetes are getting the care they need," said James R.Knickman, president and CEO of NYSHealth.

Address: CDPHP, 500 Patroon Creek Blvd., Albany, NY 12206; (518) 641-3000,
