Smith Lauds Healthy NY Health Insurance
Senator Malcolm A. Smith is encouraging sole proprietors, small business owners and uninsured individuals to learn more about Healthy NY, a reduced cost health insurance plan designed to provide streamlined, yet comprehensive coverage.
The Healthy NY plan covers a variety of essential health needs. Benefits include inpatient and outpatient services, physician services, maternity care, diagnostic and x-ray services, preventive care and emergency service.
Applicants can choose a benefit package that includes a limited prescription drug benefit or one that does not.
Senator Smith said choosing the right insurance plan to meet a family's needs is an important decision. "You may want to consider other public benefits as well, such as Family Health Plus and Child Health Plus. Compare premium prices, and also check to see if your personal physician participates in the health plan before signing up," he added.
