NY State of Health: What Does it Mean for You?
NY State of Health, the Official Health Plan Marketplace, is where New Yorkers will shop for, compare and enroll in health insurance coverage. You will have a choice of health plans and help finding the plan that is right for you. It's the only place to get financial assistance to reduce the cost of coverage. Health insurance offered in the Marketplace will include a comprehensive set of benefits.
The Open Enrollment period was from November 15, 2014 until February 15, 2015.
It has been extended for people who started their application prior to February 15, 2015 but who were unable to continue, until February 28, 2015.
For individuals in NY State using the Federal Marketplace who did not have health coverage in 2014 and are subject to a federal tax penalty, a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) has been granted from March 1 to April 30, 2015.
