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 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.
