Olympic Regional Development Authority

Eligibility for Health Insurance Coverage

The Olympic Regional Development Authority operates and maintains certain sports facilities in Lake Placid and elsewhere. The Authority participates in the New York State Health Insurance Program (NYSHIP), which provides health insurance coverage to active and retired State and local government employees and their dependents. We examined the Authority’s practices for enrolling individuals and their dependents in NYSHIP, and found that the Authority was only enrolling people who met the eligibility requirements. We also determined that the Authority was obtaining sufficient documentation from its employees to demonstrate that individuals being enrolled as dependents qualified for this coverage under State rules.
