This health insurance company, also known as the New York State Catholic Health Plan, presented a $383,500 check to Catholic Charities on April 27, 2015.
Their donation will go a long way towards advancing both agencies’ missions of serving poor and medically underserved New Yorkers.
“We share your commitment to providing access to quality healthcare and other services for vulnerable individuals and are pleased to contribute resources to support your community programs,” Cardinal Dolan, a member of Fidelis Care New York and Rev. Patrick Frawley, Fidelis Care New York President and CEO wrote in a letter included with the donation.
A key part of the Catholic healthcare ministry, Fidelis Care enrolls over 1.2 million low-income New Yorkers needing health insurance coverage in various health insurance and exchange programs.
