NYS Hospitals Help People Get Health Insurance

New York State and the federal government have joined together to make hundreds of thousands of uninsured New Yorkers eligible for health insurance through the Health Plan Marketplace at NY State of Health.

However, enrolling in the program can be complicated and difficult for many to understand. So New York's hospitals and healthcare systems are having their staff trained to become Certified Application Counselors to help people get the health insurance they need. This service is just one of the many things our hospitals are doing to improve population health.
