PLATTSBURGH - Fidelis Care has partnered with Mountain View Pediatrics to help local uninsured residents apply for quality, free or low-cost health care coverage.

Fidelis Care representatives will be on site at Mountain View Pediatrics, 18 Feathers Drive, Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. to answer questions about health insurance options and to help eligible residents apply to enroll in Fidelis Care programs.

Fidelis Care offers free or low-cost health insurance through New York State's Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus, and Medicaid Managed Care programs.
