An history of firsts
EmblemHealth was created when two successful companies, Group Health Incorporated and Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York came together with complementary fortes.
GHI was the first in the country to offer dental coverage as well as the first insurer to cover preventative medicine, such as annual exams and well-baby care.
The success of HIP is largely attributed to New York’s City mayor at the time, Fiorello LaGuardia.
This New York-based provider serves approximately 3.4 million New Yorkers, making it the largest health insurer in the state. Groups and individuals can select from many levels of PPO, EPO and HMO coverage plans, as well as the ability to choose prescription drug, dental and vision insurance.
