Who We Are
Healthfirst is a not-for-profit managed care organization, sponsored by some of the most prestigious and nationally recognized hospitals and medical centers in New York and Long Island. We offer a variety of government-sponsored health insurance programs covering children, adults, seniors, and small businesses.
Established in 1993, Healthfirst has a unique hospital-sponsored business model that allows us to reinvest in the not-for-profit and public health care system by returning the financial savings from our operational efficiencies to our hospital sponsors.
Healthfirst strives to meet the needs of the diverse communities we serve through close provider partnerships and strong community involvement. We are one of the fastest growing health plans in New York and New Jersey with over one million members and a network of more than 24,000 providers.
