The New York State Senate today passed legislation to provide stronger preventative health care for women. The bill (S.1883A), sponsored by Senator John Flanagan (R-C-I, East Northport), requires insurance companies to cover the cost of supplemental screening for women who have dense breast tissue or who are at greater risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Legislation would provide safety net in the event retiree health benefits are eliminated
Eastman Kodak’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month has prompted much uncertainty for employees and retirees of the company. To try to mitigate these fears, Senator Robach joined with Assemblyman Reilich and Brighton Securities last week to host an informational forum which addressed potential implications Kodak’s bankruptcy may have on employees, retirees, vendors and local municipalities. The one concern heard over again, which there was no clear answer to, was the potential fate of health benefits for retirees.

in the event retiree health benefits are eliminated
Rochester, NY - Eastman Kodak’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year has prompted much uncertainty for employees and retirees of the company. If Kodak eliminates health benefits for retirees, those who have not yet reached the age of 65 (when they qualify for Medicare) will be left uninsured.
