Local veterans and their dependents will have better access to affordable dental and vision care under a new program being announced by Westchester County and state officials this morning.
The Smiling On America’s Heroes program has been developed in conjunction with Careington, which provides discounted health care plans, according to a county spokesperson. It will offer veterans discounted dental and vision services and assistance in receiving affordable health care services for themselves and their dependent family members.
The New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) has endorsed the program and is encouraging county veteran service agencies throughout the state to market the program to veterans and returning service members.
