What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?


One of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)  is that all Americans purchase health insurance. The Health Insurance Marketplace was created to help people pick out an insurance plan based on their income and their healthcare needs.

You can chat online with a representative via their webpage or contact their call center with questions.

What is the New York State of Health (NYSOH)?


NY State of Health is an on-line marketplace where New Yorker's can shop for health insurance. The site can be used by individuals, families and small businesses. The Marketplace is designed to help people compare options, calculate costs and select insurance coverage. It will also tell people what type of financial assistance is available to help pay for their insurance and if they are eligible for Medicaid.
