Discussion On Health Insurance Marketplace in Rochester Open To The Public

Superintendent of Insurance Gregory V. Serio today announced that the Department will be conducting a roundtable discussion, open to the public, to address the health insurance marketplace in Rochester. Anyone interested in participating in the public Roundtable should register with the Insurance Department by calling Ellen Wenz at 212-480-5262 by Wednesday, October 16th.

The New York State Insurance Department has been conducting Roundtable discussions with business, insurance and medical provider groups in Rochester and is now pleased to host a forum for the public to discuss their concerns. The forum is scheduled on Thursday, October 17th in Rochester as follows:

Rochester City Hall
30 Church Street
City Hall Council Chambers
Room 302A
Rochester, NY

The forum is open to the public. Individuals who are unable to attend the Roundtable are encouraged to submit written comments to: New York State Insurance Department, 25 Beaver Street, Public Affairs & Research, New York, NY 10004. Written submissions should address, but not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Current condition of the Rochester health insurance pool and future affects of community rating on health insurance rates;
  • The availability of coverage, including the adequacy of coverages and coverage limits; and
  • Changes and adjustments in premiums on insurance policies.

The Department holds Health Care Roundtable sessions quarterly in an effort to maintain an open dialogue between payers, providers, and the public. Earlier this year, in a Department visit to the Rochester area, meetings with area health insurers and area businesses indicated a need to address area concerns in greater depth. As a result, additional Roundtables were held to discuss the Rochester health insurance marketplace in April and again in early October.
