Patients fear Mt. Sinai will drop low-cost insurance plans
For four months, Yitzchok Shuster felt secure in the knowledge that he had signed up for a health insurance plan on New York's Affordable Care Act exchange, and that he was still able to see his longtime doctor, who was employed by the Mount Sinai Health System. After his insurance took effect in January, he visited the doctor, Gary Lerner, at his Forest Hills, Queens, office three or four times with minor ailments. Then at his last visit, three weeks ago, Mr. Shuster was warned that the practice was planning to drop his plan, Empire BlueCross BlueShield Pathway.
