Fidelis Care revealed the expansion and rebranding of its fleet of mobile vehicles at Terrace on the Park Monday afternoon to hundreds of employees.

Five new RVs have been added to the health insurer’s fleet of full-service mobile outreach centers, now called StreetSide, increasing the count from 10 to 15.

“Our fleet of vehicles go to the heart of the neighborhood,” said George Rodriguez, senior director of sales and marketing for Fidelis Care. “You guys, our staff, are local. You speak the languages and you are from the community and you promote health and wellness.”

The RVs feature a new design with the tagline “Bringing Health Coverage to You.”

According to the company, more than 9,000 people have already enrolled in coverage via the RV in 2019. The statewide health insurer has 24 community offices, including 15 in the city.

With the Annual Election Period for Medicare and Open Enrollment for Qualified Health Plans through NY State of Health now underway, the StreetSide program makes it easy for people to apply for health insurance, learn about benefits and have their questions answered.

“With more than 900,000 members in the greater New York City area, Fidelis Care is bringing health insurance education to local neighborhoods and making it as easy as possible to get coverage,” said Pam Hassen, the company’s chief member engagement officer.

No appointments are necessary, though area residents can schedule a time to meet with a Fidelis Care representative at a StreetSide location by calling 1 (888) FIDELIS (343-3547).

Weekly updates on StreetSide locations will be posted at fideliscare.org/streetside and can be searched via the #streetside hashtag on Instagram.

Fidelis Care has more than 1.7 million customers statewide.
