A New York health insurer is offering a special group health plan for consumers who have lost their coverage as a result of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.[@@]

Group Health Inc. will be selling the preferred provider organization plan, which has a network of 80,000 providers in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, to individuals and families who formerly had coverage through a family member who died as a result of the 9/11 attacks.

GHI set up the plan with help from surviving family members; Herrick Feinstein L.P., New York, a law firm; the Policy Research Group, New York; and the office of Sen. Jon Corzine.

Members of the plan must pay their own bills, but the program will give GHI the ability to offer members relatively low group insurance rates, GHI says.
