ALBANY, N.Y. -- WellCare celebrated its new location in downtown Albany on Thursday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The new community based office is located on State Street. The company's interim president, John Burke, said the move will give the company greater visibility, and will be more accessible to the community.
He said the mission is to serve the uninsured, elderly, and low income population in the Capital Region.
"By having a store front office with visibility in downtown, folks know where we are, they can come in, they can get service, they can enroll in a plan and they can have access to a health plan," said Burke.
WellCare's welcome rooms serve as neighborhood healthcare information, education, and sales centers that are open to the public to answer healthcare questions.
