Health insurance change for some in Wyoming, Orleans Counties

Created: 07/18/2014 12:02 PM WHEC.com

Health insurance changes took place today for some people in our area today.

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York is dropping Medicaid managed insurance plans. The plans are set to end in October. People impacted by the change in Orleans and Wyoming Counties will be notified in a letter next month.

We want to be clear, this will not affect the majority of BlueCross customers in Rochester who use a different BlueCross provider.  

Earlier today we aired video of a wrong building in connection with this story. We apologize for the error.
