After conducting several interviews with three different brokers, Van Buren officials have selected MVP Gold Anywhere PPO as the new retiree health insurance coverage with ENV as the broker. Officials were forced to find new coverage when the town's current provider of coverage, HealthNet, announced they were leaving New York state Dec. 31.
Councilor Pat Dickman said making the change now should allow a better flow for recipients to get policy in place and receive new insurance cards. She added that MVP was the least expensive choice and that it provides good coverage.
"Right now we're very comfortable with [MVP]," she said.
