WebsiteSEE GRANT OUTCOMES
With a planning grant from the New York Health Foundation’s “Expanding Coverage Options in the Small Group and Individual Market in New York State” program, Fidelis Care examined the feasibility of expanding the Family Health Plus Employer Buy-in program to employers outside of those belonging to the Section 1199 Benefit Fund.
This grant was one of five organizations that received a planning grant from the 2008 NYHealth request for proposals (RFP), “Expanding Coverage Options in the Small Group and Individual Market in New York State.” The RFP grew directly out of the Foundation’s desire to generate ideas for expanding health insurance options for small businesses and sole proprietors.
