Lourdes Offers Help With HealthCare Registration

By Kerry Longobucco; Brianna Case.
Lourdes Hospital is making it easier for eligible patients sign up for health insurance.

On Saturday, Lourdes will hold an enrollment session to help patients sign up for free insurance through the New York State of Health Marketplace, or financial assistance through Lourdes.

Application counselors will help enroll patients through the Marketplace, or through a program called the Lourdes Patient Financial Assistance Program.

Staff will be on hand to help patients understand what they're eligible for, and answer questions.

"We can help you with balances after insurance, such as copays, deductibles and co-insurance," Mary Petko, of patient financial services at Lourdes, said. "It's been a very valuable program, and it's grown exponentially, and we're here to help."

The session will take place Saturday, January 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Lourdes Center for Oral Health at 219 Front St.
