In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), New York State has opened a Special Enrollment Period from March 16 to April 15 for eligible, uninsured individuals and their families to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan for coverage beginning on April 1.
The Special Enrollment Period is intended to encourage individuals to seek health care coverage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Insured individuals can seek medical care and testing without fear of the cost.
Who is eligible to enroll?
Prospective NY members who are not currently insured and are not eligible for coverage under any government program (Medicaid).
What are the enrollment dates?
Effective date options are 4/1 and 5/1.
Is this valid in any other state?
At this time the Special Enrollment Period only applies in NY. If any other state allows for enrollment we will advise.
Please reach out to us at 212-389-7838 if you don’t currently have medical coverage. We will be happy to assist you with the enrollment process and answer any questions you may have.
Individuals who qualify for financial assistance or subsidies should contact the New York State of Health at nystateofhealth.ny.gov to enroll.
Best Regards and Stay Safe.
