Established in 1995, the Coalition of New York State Public Health Plans (formerly the New York State Coalition of Prepaid Health Services Plans) is an important voice for New York's non-profit, publicly-focused health plans and the safety net populations they serve. Over the last decade, Coalition plans have grown to serve the majority of children and adults accessing their public insurance coverage through health plans. Coalition plans offer decades of experience in delivering high quality services to these populations that often experience significant barriers to health care, and consistently receive high marks in quality of care and member satisfaction.

The Coalition currently represents nine plans serving 2.7 million, or about two-thirds of children and adults enrolled in New York's Medicaid managed care, Family Health Plus, and Child Health Plus programs. All Coalition plans are sponsored by or affiliated with public and not-for-profit hospitals, community health centers and physicians.

For more information, contact the Coalition's representative, Tony Fiori at Manatt, Phelps and Phillips, LLP, at 212-790-4500 or
