Improve Our Health Care Coverage Today!
The employees of Centers Plan for Healthy Living and Centers Care Solutions respectfully request that you improve our health insurance coverage. We are more than a thousand employees taking care of nearly 30,000 members, and today our members have better healthcare than we do.
Since CPHL started it has flourished, becoming the fastest growing and largest MLTC in New York, due to the hard work and dedication of its employees. We deserve access to a better network of hospitals. We should not spend more time fighting over claims than we do seeing a doctor. We should have access to the prescriptions we need. We should be able to use emergency care services without fear of going bankrupt.
Why is this important?
CPHL is the only company like ours to offer such poor benefits to its employees. None of our competitors offer health coverage through third-party administrators, they provide their employees direct access to coverage. Every year we lose valuable staff to these companies.
Our health insurance today is making us sick, not healthy. The Centers for Disease Control states that “maintaining a healthier workforce can lower direct costs such as insurance premiums and worker’s compensation claims. It will also positively impact many indirect costs such as absenteeism and worker productivity.” We want to feel confident that CPHL is invested in us as much as we are invested in CPHL. None of us want to work for a company that devalues its employees this way. Please improve our health insurance coverage, what we have today is inadequate, and it makes us feel like the only thing you care about is YOUR bottom line.
