GHI and HIPIC Renamed EmblemHealth


As a reminder, we had announced late last year that we were retiring the Group Health Incorporated (GHI) and HIP Insurance Company of New York (HIPIC) names and replacing them with names that reflect our EmblemHealth identity. This has been done and is in effect.

Coverage and benefits remain the same. The EmblemHealth name changes do not affect how you work with us or our members. It’s simply new names for the same companies that have been a part of your practice for years. Please make a note of the name changes:
