REVIEW: CDPHP Medicare Supplements in New York
CDPHP scored 3.0 out of 5.0 based on our scoring method. CDPHP has a good Plan F rate (top 10), and they have been servicing Medicare Supplements for 11 years, but their A.M. Best financial rating is unknown or not great. Plus, they charge a policy fee. Consequently, we cautiously recommend this carrier to New York seniors. See the top 10 competition.

- More than 10 years in the Medicare Supplements business.
- Unknown financial strength (no A.M. Best rating).
- Does not offer Medicare SELECT plans.
- Does not offer the 5 most popular plans.
- Charges a fee to write the policy.
