Health Insurance Coverage Application Assistance

The City is urging New Yorkers to take advantage of new affordable health insurance options made possible by the Affordable Care Act.  

Open enrollment for many New Yorkers started November 15, 2014, and will last until February 15, 2015. Those qualifying for Medicaid or Child Health Plus, or have had certain changes in their life, still have the opportunity to enroll in health insurance coverage at any time during the year. 

You can get more information about enrolling in health insurance online, by phone, or in person.

If you'd like to get information online, visit, or you can call (855) 355-5777.

To get help in person, you can make an appointment to meet with an assistor, who will:

  • Find out if you qualify to enroll right now
  • Find out if you qualify for public coverage, including Medicaid
  • Find out if you qualify for financial help to pay for coverage
  • Help you sign up for health insurance coverage
