Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, health insurance enrollment services in-person are temporarily unavailable at our offices until further notice. Virtual services are available – our enrollment staff will assist you over the phone. Please check the Enrollment Services and the Facilitated Enrollment for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (FE-ABD) pages for more details.
Each year, Public Health Solutions (PHS) helps over 12,000 families submit their applications and over 18,000 individuals successfully enroll in and renew their health insurance through the NY State of Health Marketplace. PHS’ Health Insurance Navigator and Facilitated Enrollment programs have contributed to a significant decline in the uninsured rate in New York. In addition to general enrollment, we also offer specialized enrollment for eligible individuals who are age 65 and older, or certified blind, or living with disabilities.
The uninsured rate in New York has fallen 40% since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted in 2010.
