New York State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace opened for business on October 1, 2013.  The Marketplace is where individuals, families and small business owners shop for, compare and enroll in health insurance coverage.  All insurance plans available in the Marketplace offer a comprehensive set of essential health benefits. It’s also the only place to get financial assistance to reduce the cost of coverage. The Marketplace determines eligibility and allows for enrollment in health care programs like Medicaid and Child Health Plus.

Although the Marketplace was designed to enable individuals to enroll themselves, programs have been set up throughout New York State to provide enrollment assistance.  Enrollment Specialists in Adirondack Health Institute’s Enrollment Assistance Services and Education (EASE) department, certified navigators who have received intensive training by New York State, are here to guide you through the enrollment process.

Our friendly team will help you find the right health insurance plan based on your unique needs and figure out if you can get financial assistance to reduce the cost of coverage.  Please click here for our Enrollment Site Listing.
