• Affinity Earns 4-Star Quality Rating from DOH

  • Affinity Health Plan received an overall 4-star designation in New York City, Long Island and Hudson Valley from the New York State Department of Health’s 2019 Consumer’s Guide to Medicaid and Child Health Plus Managed Care Plans. The statewide guide provides an annual rating of managed care plans on quality of care delivered and members’ satisfaction with the care and services they receive. Affinity Health Plan’s 2019 overall rating includes four stars in the following clinical areas: Child and Adolescent Care, Women’s Preventative Care, Maternal Care, Adult Care, and Diabetes Care.

    Ratings of 0 to 5 stars are based on a comparison of plan rates to statewide averages. Quality ratings are based on information submitted by health plans. Patient satisfaction ratings are from a member survey conducted for the Department of Health.

    “Affinity Health Plan’s 4-star designation is a sign that we have successfully achieved some of the highest standards of quality and member satisfaction in our industry,” said Michael Murphy, Chief Executive Officer. “This upgraded quality rating is a reflection of the operational and strategic restructuring that Affinity Health Plan has undertaken the past two years, and our unwavering commitment to serving our members and the community.”

    The Consumer’s Guide is designed to help New Yorkers choose a managed care plan that meets their health care needs and the needs of their families. The complete 2019 Consumer’s Guide to Medicaid and Child Health Plus Managed Care Plans can be found at:
