Cabrini Apartments in New York City, a 71 unit HUD Section 202 supportive housing development for elders in conjunction with Eye Care Billing Consultants (ECBC) offered free eye exams to its tenants. Twenty percent of the occupants took advantage of this offer, and for many it was the first eye exam they had received in many years.
Besides checking their vision, the exams focused on eye health looking for things like Glaucoma, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration. While HIPAA regulations prevent us from knowing details of any follow-up care, it is rewarding that we were able to provide this service to our tenants at no cost. This program will be offered on an annual basis and is another example how under Philip Deans’ leadership Cabrini goes above and beyond requirements to meet the needs of its families.
