The enrollment period for 2022 Qualified Health Plans under the NY State of Health is now open. Coverage starts January 1, 2022.
NY State of Health, the state’s official health plan Marketplace, provides new and returning consumers quality, low-cost health insurance options, with a choice of Qualified Health Plans (QHP) in every county, and continues to offer expanded tax credits through the American Rescue Plan Act.
More than 6.3 million individuals—or one in three New Yorkers—are enrolled in health coverage through the Marketplace. As of October 31, 2021, 232,477 people enrolled in a QHP and 925,588 enrolled in the Essential Plan.
Enrollment for 2021 coverage across all NY State of Health programs will continue through the end of the year. The 2022 Open Enrollment Period for Qualified Health Plans runs from November 16, 2021 to January 31, 2022.
American Rescue Plan Act tax credits are still available throughout 2022. This enhanced financial assistance can lower the cost of premiums for current and new enrollees, including higher-income individuals for the first time.
New this year is a program called “Care at Home” to help New Yorkers shop for safe and reliable home care services for themselves, their family and their loved ones on a private pay basis. The program is initially launching as a pilot in Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties. NY State of Health is collaborating with Carina, a non-proﬁt technology organization that provides care-matching service.
