The Southern Tier Health Care Exchange discussed the newly enacted Health Care Exchanges this afternoon at the Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network at 457 State Street in Binghamton.  Speaking at the gathering were elected officials along with Mary Clark from Citizen Action, Sharon Chesna, the Executive Director of Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network and Krys Cail, a small business owner and agriculture consultant.

New York State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo was one of the speakers  and said that  “today, according to the NYS Health Foundation, over one million New Yorkers will have access to affordable healthcare thanks to New York’s new health exchange”.

There are several community agencies that will act as navigators for resources for providing assistance to obtain health care through the new exchanges. Navigators are located throughout the region including at Mother & Babies Perinatal Network.  They can be contacted at 1-800-231-0744.

According to Krys Cail the Affordable Care Act provide the opportunity for medical coverage for many small business owners and farmers who have been unable to pay the high cost of private health insurance. Information on the Health Care Exchanges is available online at
