IMPORTANT CHANGES are coming to the Healthy NY program.  Beginning January 1, 2014, Healthy NY will no longer provide coverage for individuals or sole proprietors.  The program will be limited to small employers only.

If you currently have Healthy NY coverage, it will terminate on December 31, 2013.  If you plan to enroll in Healthy NY in 2013, your coverage will also terminate on December 31, 2013.

The New York State of Health Marketplace ( will help you shop for and enroll in health insurance.  You will be able to use the Marketplace to compare insurance options and prices offered.  You will also be able to calculate costs and enroll in coverage online, in person, over the phone or by mail.  You may also qualify to receive assistance to help pay for insurance offered through the Marketplace.  You can purchase insurance through the Marketplace beginning in October 2013 for coverage starting January 1, 2014.
