Introduction to Oxford Health Plans
Oxford Health Plans is a healthcare company founded by several leading physicians and health professionals who believe that everyone is entitled to top-quality, affordable healthcare built on a foundation of choice, flexibility, security and information.
All of Oxford's plans, programs and services were developed as a result of Member's needs, but the success of these services is truly dependent on your satisfaction.
The National Commission for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is an independent, not for profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting the quality of managed care plans and other healthcare-related organizations. The NCQA recently upgraded Oxford to "Commendable Accreditation" from their previous status of "Accredited." According to the NCQA's accreditation process and review classification, "Commendable Accreditation" is awarded to an organization for service and clinical quality that meets or exceeds NCQA's rigorous requirements for consumer protection and quality improvement.
For NYCDS members, working with Oxford means that you can be confident that you and your employees will have access to the widest array of healthcare choices, with Oxford's assurance of top quality.

- Access to discounted weight loss programs, optical services, fitness clubs and spa services.
