Our Commitment to Health Equity

No one should lack access to the healthcare they need and deserve. At Healthfirst, health equity is not just something we do, it is who we are, it is our obligation. Battling disparities and improving access to quality healthcare for our members and for the communities where they live guides our work.

ADVANCE is rooted in the collaborative relationship between Healthfirst and its 15 founding hospital systems, local providers and community partners. Together, we champion the health needs of NY’s underserved population adversely impacted by disease, health disparities, and socioeconomic barriers to optimal health. As one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health insurance providers, we’re committed to building a healthier future for New Yorkers.
