Crystal Run Healthcare launches health plan

Crystal Run Healthcare, a multi-specialty group medical practice based in Middletown, N.Y., announced Tuesday it will now offer health insurance coverage for residents or employees of Orange and Sullivan counties in New York.

The state approved commercial Small Group PPO and EPO health plans for Crystal Run Healthcare. The Crystal Run Health Plans will include Crystal Run Healthcare providers and other additional providers, facilities and hospitals. Some plans include dental and vision coverage for dependents and pharmacy coverage.

"The role we play as physicians has evolved. Our 'product' is not primarily healthcare services — surgery, medication, visits and diagnostic tests — but rather, health outcomes, assuring that our patients and communities enjoy a better quality and quantity of life," Crystal Run Healthcare Managing Partner and CEO Hal Teitelbaum, MD, JD, said in a statement. "Establishing Crystal Run Health Plans provides us the platform we need to innovate and partner with patients, employers and other providers to develop a sustainable, high-value healthcare system."

The group medical practice also expects to roll out Large Group PPO and EPO plans, as well as HMO plans later this year.
