Warsaw, NY (January 13, 2012) – Fidelis Care, the New York State Catholic Health Plan, is proud to join with the Warsaw Public Library to offer two Health Insurance Open Houses for uninsured residents of Wyoming County.

Wyoming County is home to more than 900 uninsured children under the age of 19, and nearly 3,800 uninsured adults between the ages of 19 and 64. Fidelis Care is committed to reducing these numbers and ensuring that all New Yorkers have access to affordable, quality health insurance coverage.

The Open Houses will run from 4:00pm until 7:00pm on Wednesday, February 1st, and from 10:00am until 1:00pm on Tuesday, February 7th.
