Conference to Assess Proposed Point Of Entry Health Care Plan

Albany, NY – A day-long conference will be held Tuesday to assess a proposal being developed by the New York State Department of Health and Office of Aging to create a so-called "point-of-entry" system for anyone seeking long-term care. Conference organizers plan to discuss how the system works in other states and what impacts the proposed system would have on providers and patients here.
