Healthfirst is a not-for-profit managed care organization, sponsored by some of the most prestigious and nationally recognized hospitals and medical centers in New York. Our mission is to provide high-quality health care coverage to individuals and families in our New York service areas through a variety of government-sponsored health insurance programs, including New York State's Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage.*
Established in 1993, Healthfirst has a unique hospital-sponsored business model, which allows us to reinvest in the not-for-profit and public health care system by returning the financial savings from our operational efficiencies to our hospital sponsors.
Healthfirst strives to meet the needs of the diverse communities we serve through close provider partnerships and strong community involvement. We are one of the fastest growing health plans in New York and New Jersey with over 900,000 members and a network of more than 24,000 providers.
