Healthfirst is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health insurers, offering members access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. The company’s mission is to put its members first by working closely with care providers and community leaders to address broader issues that can impact health and well-being. This value-based care model is the foundation of Healthfirst’s sustained growth in one of the most dynamic markets in the country. Healthfirst employees believe that good health doesn't start in a doctor's office and are passionate about what they do, focused on the future, and dedicated to making a difference in people’s lives.


Diversity is essential to our core values.

We encourage employees to be their authentic selves; to use their skills, talents, and abilities to support our mission of achieving immediate, lasting and beneficial change in the lives of the people we serve. Our diversity initiatives foster employee creativity, collaboration, and engagement.

We believe that our workforce should be a reflection of the communities we serve. That's why we value diversity and strive to build an inclusive, welcoming workplace. Healthfirst recruits talent of every race, gender, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age, and disability at every level of our company. This commitment to diversity strengthens the community connection that has made Healthfirst one of the most trusted health plans in New York.

Through these initiatives, we have developed a culture to promote a diverse workforce of individuals who feel that they are equitably treated, respected, visible, and enabled to do their best work in their chosen areas of expertise, in order to better serve the community that we support.
