Why Get Covered?

Why get covered, anyway? Save money, stay healthy, prepare for emergencies

GetCoveredNYC is here to help you navigate the health insurance enrollment process and demystify health insurance. But first, why get covered, anyway? There is nothing more important than your health and the health of your family. Health insurance helps you avoid high, unexpected costs and makes preventive care more affordable to help you stay healthy. Learn more here and spread the word about the importance of health insurance with our toolkit below. 

GetCoveredNYC is a citywide outreach program housed within the Mayor's Public Engagement Unit (PEU), which 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.
