GetCoveredNYC: Open Enrollment 2021-2022

The deadline for Open Enrollment has been extended!

Health coverage is now more affordable than ever, and now New Yorkers have more time to enroll. But don't delay! Enroll by the 15th of the month for health coverage starting on the 1st of the following month.

New Yorkers who don't have health coverage should contact PEU's GetCoveredNYC team right away to be in touch with a Specialist to get started. Head to or call 311 and say GetCoveredNYC and a Specialist will be in touch with you to help you through the process.

Thank you for helping with spreading the word about how New Yorkers can get health insurance. GetCoveredNYC helps New Yorkers in the five boroughs enroll in health insurance, including low- or no-cost options, under the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare).

Here's how you can help:

  • Post about the upcoming deadline on your social media channels
