Central New Yorkers will be among 2.4 million residents statewide who can start enrolling for some form of financial help as parts of the Affordable Healthcare Act kick in. Beginning October 1, 2013 individuals are able to enroll and secure financial benefits, which begin at the start of 2014.
Ron Pollack, with Families USA, says most will be eligible for financial help:
Construction on the Upstate Cancer Research Center at University Hospital in Syracuse is rapidly taking shape.
The center will have a variety of medical services in a centralized location. Many services are already being offered, like a specialized psychologist, who works to help the emotional and psychological needs that cancer patients and families deal with, and an integrated medicine specialist, who advises patients on non-traditional therapies they may wish to add to their traditional treatment methods.
