Need Health Insurance?

The Rockland County Dept. of Health has announced that on Nov 15, 2014, the second open-enrollment period will begin for individual health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Those who did not sign up previously can enroll for coverage starting in 2015, and those who are already covered can renew or change their policies.
NY State health, the official Health Plan Marketplace, is where New Yorkers can shop for, compare and enroll in health insurance coverage. You have a choice of health planes, and help is available to find the plan that is right for you. It’s the only place to get financial assistance to reduce the cost of coverage.
You can sign up online at www.nystateofhealth.ny.gov ; by calling toll free 1-855-355-5777; or in person by calling 845-364-3394 to make an appointment.
