Did you know that as of June 30th, the hospital and all of its doctors are dropping Emblem Insurance (the only insurance purchased on the NY Marketplace (obamacare) that they currently accept? This means, anyone out east who has health insurance purchased from the NY Marketplace will no longer be able to continue their care at the Breast Center, SH/SB Hospital, Stony Brook University Hospital, or with ANY of the doctors associated with the hospital.

Emblem dropped the Hospital, the Hospital did not drop Emblem. We have been working hard to resolve this matter and believe it will come to a satisfactory resolution within days.

Let's hope so is right!! Empire Blue discontinued their plan that had decent coverage and was accepted by Southampton/Stoneybrook , Emblem was the choice we were left with as self employed ,Mom and Pop business owners.

It was Stony Brook University Hospital management (Sam Stanley, MD, and Ken Kaushansky, MD) who allowed Emblem to drop coverage for Southampton patients, either through gross mismanagement, or intentionally. This comes right after accepting over $500 million from investor Jim Simons and Renaissance Technologies and renaming the hospital "Renaissance. " Then attempting to remove students with disabilities and a supporting educational program from campus, because they are a "risk". They answer directly ...more
