Open enrollment in the New York State of Health Marketplace commenced November 1, 2016 for coverage on the New York State of Health. The Marketplace functions as an online web portal where individuals, families and businesses can shop for and obtain affordable health care. Through the Marketplace, New Yorkers are able to compare Qualified Health Plans, Medicaid and Child Health Plus options; calculate costs; select coverage; and determine what type of financial assistance may be available. Public health care programs are available for those who are eligible.
New York State Department of Health has contracted with Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency, Inc. and its subcontractor Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce to provide Navigator services in Cayuga and Seneca Counties to assist potential enrollees with accessing affordable care through the Marketplace, including:
