Coverage & Care

Health insurance ("coverage") helps you pay for health care to stay well, or in case you get sick or have a medical emergency. NYC Health Insurance Link is here to help you understand your health insurance options and find affordable health care. If you can't get health insurance, you can still get care in NYC.

Why do I need Health Insurance?

Health insurance can help protect you from large medical bills. Now, more than ever, it's important that everyone who can get health insurance does so – that's because the Affordable Care Act requires it.
