Creating Healthier Futures, Together

EmblemHealth is a health and wellness company that provides insurance plans, primary and specialty care, and wellness solutions. As one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health insurers, we serve more than three million people in the New York tristate area.

EmblemHealth’s family of companies includes ConnectiCare, one of Connecticut’s leading health plans; AdvantageCare Physicians, a primary and specialty care practice; and WellSpark, a digital wellness company.

EmblemHealth started back in the 1930s, at the height of the Great Depression. Out of hard times, the idea of health insurance was born: a system that would protect everyday people from financial misfortune if they had an accident or illness.

Two companies from those early days of health insurance, Group Health Incorporated (GHI) and Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP), would later merge and become EmblemHealth. And after 80 years, our mission is still the same: to create healthier futures for our customers and communities. 

Our Family of Companies

Every person is on his or her own health journey, whether that’s taking steps to eat better, or managing a chronic condition like hypertension or diabetes. No two people, and no two communities, are alike. That’s why, as a family of companies, we offer care and coverage across the continuum of our customers’ needs.
