ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — CDPHP members who use St. Peter’s healthcare facilities will not experience any disruption in care after the two sides reached a contract agreement over the weekend. St. Peter’s had encouraged patients to start looking for other health coverage earlier this year because of the dispute.
A spokesperson for CDPHP said the new contract is a win for everyone involved.
“CDPHP and St. Peter’s are really health care pillars in this community,” CDPHP spokesperson Ali Skinner said. “We both need each other. Their patients, our members, we did not want any disruption in care for either of those parties.”
CDPHP Medicare Advantage members, who chose to leave because of the contract negotiations, are able to rejoin the plan during Medicare’s open enrollment period, which runs from the start of January through the end of March.
