CDPHP Fined $600,000

Hard on the heels of HealthNow's million dollar fine, the State Insurance Department has fined CDPHP $600,000, reported in today's Albany Times Union:

Capital District Physicians' Health Plan has been fined $600,000 by the state for not telling members they could appeal denied claims, the Insurance Department said Tuesday.

CDPHP was cited when some of its lines -- its HMO product and several policies run by subsidiary Universal Benefits Inc. -- failed to provide this information for 121,911 claims submitted between 2004 and 2006, the department said.
