CEO Update
Celebrating National Rural Health Day!

This coming Thursday is National Rural Health Day. In that light, I’d like to take time to thank all of our partners who make our rural health mission possible. We couldn’t meet the unique health needs of the rural communities we serve without guidance from our amazing Board of Directors and member agencies across our three counties. I look forward to working with all of you well into the future to enhance health and quality of life for our friends, family and neighbors.

I’d also like to thank Director Karen Madden and the Charles D. Cook Office of Rural Health. This partnership allows us to do what we do. Director Madden was instrumental in the naming of November 15th as National Rural Health Day. If you speak with her that day, be sure to pass along best wishes!
Open Enrollment Period for Health Insurance

The 2019 Open Enrollment Period to acquire affordable health insurance began November 1, 2018 and will continue through January 31, 2019. Consumers who are new to the NYS of Health Marketplace will be able to enroll in coverage for 2019 now that the Open Enrollment Period has begun. Over 95 percent of Marketplace enrollees will see no cost increase in 2019, including those who are enrolled in Medicaid and the Essential Plan and those who are eligible to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan with financial assistance. Corrie Malone and Toni Cottone are STHCS' in-person insurance navigators and will be available to help consumers with enrollment and renewal. They will renew coverage for hundreds of households in our catchment during the Open Enrollment Period. Notices for renewals will be going out on November 16th. Their schedules are filling up fast, so if you know someone who needs to get insurance, please have them reach out to us at (716) 372-0614 to set up an appointment.
 
I’m so proud of both Corrie and Toni, and I would like to thank them for their ongoing dedication to ensuring all our residents have access to insurance.
