Hannaford Helps Get Uninsured Up to Speed

The new “Healthy Living Center” in the Albany Hannaford supermarket — featuring free access to fitness equipment and classes, personal lockers and showers — visitors engage in one-on-one consultations with representatives of Capital District Physicians Health Plan (CDPHP). CDPHP, Hannaford and Capital District YMCA are funding the facility and donating resources like dietitians and exercise class instructors. CDPHP’s certified application counselors are also on-hand to answer questions about what Obamacare will mean for shoppers, sign them up on the exchange when appropriate and help them weigh their coverage options by considering price and whether they’ll be able to keep their current doctors under a particular plan.
