Legislator Jacobs Introduces Representative From

State Attorney General's at Syosset Rotary Club Meeting

Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) took great pleasure introducing Brian Herrington, the assistant director of intergovernmental affairs in State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s Suffolk regional office, at a recent meeting of the Syosset Rotary Club. Herrington spoke to members about the Attorney General’s Health Care Bureau also answering questions.

“What’s great about the Healthcare Bureau is that they help people who have individual healthcare and insurance problems and investigate deceptive business practices,” Legislator Jacobs said. “Brian shared a great deal of information that will make it easier for Rotary members to know how to utilize the benefits provided by the Attorney General’s Health Care Bureau. Their helpline offers so much. It seems to me that oftentimes the reason why people don’t seek this help is because they aren’t aware of all that is available. I hope Brian’s visit will change all that.”

Legislator Jacobs encourages residents to call the Attorney General’s Health Care Helpline at 1-800-428-9071 for assistance with the following issues: claiming benefits when an HMO denies coverage, assistance with health care billing and payment problems, help to obtain guaranteed health benefits, and help in investigating the loss of insurance coverage.
