Jun 05, 2018 2:44 pm
H. Rose Schneider reports in the Altamont Enterprise that Albany County’s proposed health consortium could be available in other counties if passed by the Albany County Legislature. The Albany County legislature is considering creating the “Hudson River Benefits Consortium,” which would need at least 2,000 people enrolled in the plan for it to be successful. The legislature is forwarding the plan to county governments in Columbia, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Hamilton, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saratoga, Warren, Washington, and Westchester counties to see if they want to make health savings available to their citizens.
