GetCoveredNYC is here to help you navigate the health insurance enrollment process. Learn more and share with your community using our new toolkit.
GetCoveredNYC is a citywide outreach program housed within the Mayor's Public Engagement Unit (PEU). GetCoveredNYC works alongside partners including NYC Health + Hospitals, the NYC Department of Health, NYC Care, and community-based organizations to increase access to health insurance and connect New Yorkers to other programs and benefits that promote holistic health.
All New Yorkers have health coverage options they can enroll in, no matter your immigration status or income. GetCoveredNYC provides free assistance, regardless of immigration status or income, and follows- up to provide support throughout the entire application and enrollment process.
Enrolling in health insurance can be confusing and hard to navigate. A GetCoveredNYC Specialist from the NYC Public Engagement Unit is here to help.
Our newest campaign highlights the people behind GetCoveredNYC: the Specialists. Thank you for helping us get the word out!
We invite you to share the below graphics and suggested posting text on your social media channels to promote GetCoveredNYC, demystify the people behind the program, and connect more New Yorkers to health insurance. We encourage you to tag us in your social media posts with @mayorspeu.

The deadline for Open Enrollment continues to be extended because of the Federal Public Health Emergency. This means that New Yorkers have more time to enroll in Qualified Health Plans through the Marketplace. Even though the Public Health Emergency is ongoing, New Yorkers are encouraged to enroll ASAP. You must enroll by the 15th of the month to receive health insurance on the first of the following month.
After the Open Enrollment ends, New Yorkers who miss the deadline are generally only able to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan for the same year if they experience a qualifying life event (ex: change in employment or marriage status).
Enrollment in Medicaid, the Essential Plan, or Child Health Plus is available year-round for those who meet income requirements.
