NY State of Health’s open enrollment for 2021 Qualified Health Plans is underway.
Anyone without coverage can go to the NY State of Health website to enroll from now through January 31, 2021.
According to Governor Cuomo’s office, NY State of Health expects to renew Qualified Health Plan coverage for nearly 200,000 households. Current enrollees, including those who enrolled during the special enrollment period, may begin renewing their coverage on November 16. That special enrollment period was launched in February and, due to COVID-19, has been extended through the end of 2020. If you are already signed up for Medicaid, Child Health Plus, or the Essential Plan, there is no need to get renewal. That will happen automatically.
