Original Media Source: NYC Newswire

(NEW YORK, NY – July 21, 2017) MetroPlus Health Plan announced today it has opened new community offices in three locations in the Bronx, with official opening festivities planned for later this month and early August. The move represents the first time the health plan has established community offices in that borough.

“We are excited to expand access to our services in the Bronx,” said Seth Diamond, Chief Operating Officer of MetroPlus Health Plan. “While we already count many Bronx residents among our members, bringing health care directly to where New Yorkers live and work is a core part of our mission. Opening up these three community-based offices provides MetroPlus with a great opportunity to further serve the Bronx.”

MetroPlus community offices aim to serve both current members of MetroPlus and others who may be considering joining the plan. At these offices, members and potential members get questions answered about benefits and services. Staff can also facilitate health plan enrollment—or annual renewals for current MetroPlus members. Community offices also offer health screenings, partner with community organizations to conduct enrollment for the SNAP (Food Stamp) program, and host other events that allow individuals to improve their health and wellness.
