On October 16, I hosted a Senior Information Fair at the Kallet Civic Center in Oneida. More than 150 senior citizens attended this free event and spoke with experts from local businesses, nonprofits and government agencies. People were able to ask their questions and get answers about the STAR program, EPIC, New York’s new health insurance exchange, energy savings, housing, health care, fitness, medical supplies, and more.

Starting on Tuesday, October 1, individuals, families, and small businesses can purchase health insurance through New York State of Health, the official state health plan marketplace.

Coverage is effective starting January 1, 2014.
