Get Covered!

NYC Urges Uninsured New Yorkers to Get Covered Before March 31st

"Get Covered!" is a citywide awareness campaign to motivate uninsured New Yorkers to sign up for health insurance before open enrollment ends on March 31, 2014.

It’s easier to get health insurance now than ever before. Sign up online or over the phone, or get in-person help in your borough. You can also apply at Department of Health offices.

Most uninsured New Yorkers can get a break on costs, too.

The Affordable Care Act makes this possible. But do it now.

Call 311 to get free help applying for health insurance in NYC.  311 operators can connect you to an in person assistor, who is trained and certified by NYS to help you get health insurance through NY State of Health (NYSOH).

Apply now!

Sign up Online                                                 
The NYSOH is the place to shop, compare and enroll! It is also the only place to get financial assistance in the form of Premium Tax Credits (PDF) and Cost-sharing help (PDF). The lower your income, the less you will pay.
