Launch of NYS Health Insurance Marketplace
New York State has created a one-stop-shop designed to help businesses and individuals shop for, and enroll in health insurance coverage.
Small businesses with 50 or fewer employees, individuals, and families can utilize the NY State of Health Marketplace to help compare insurance options, calculate costs and select coverage online from a certified group of health issuers. The Marketplace will also be able to assess the type of financial assistance available to applicants to help them afford health insurance purchased through the Marketplace. Insurance coverage can be purchased through NY State of Health beginning October 1, 2013 and can be effective as of January 1, 2014.
