ILION, N.Y. – Residents dealing with insufficient insurance or none at all may face a range of barriers, including the ability to handle the paperwork required to obtain the necessary coverage or simply not being informed what options are available.
On Tuesday, the New York State Wide Senior Action Council, Inc., worked to find out how to address these issues through a meeting with local residents impacted by their lack of coverage. The meeting included a video presentation by Peter Newell, director of the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York, Inc., who spoke about a report titled “Reaching the Five Percent,” which refers to the number of people who are not insured.
