Today is the deadline for open enrollment for NY State of Health, the state’s official health plan Marketplace.
According to the State, enrollment in Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) continues to rapidly increase. To date, more than 180,000 New Yorkers have enrolled in a QHP since the start of the Open Enrollment Period on November 16, 2021. Consumers must enroll by December 15, 2021 for health coverage beginning January 1, 2022.
More than 6.3 million individuals—or one in three New Yorkers—are enrolled in health coverage through the Marketplace.
Due to the American Rescue Plan (ARP), more financial help continues to be available to more New Yorkers in 2022 than ever before. The ARP offers expanded tax credits to help consumers lower their premiums. A third of New Yorkers enrolled in Qualified Health Plans pay $100 or less per month for coverage after ARP tax credits. Consumers can estimate their premium costs after the ARP’s enhanced federal tax credits through the NY State of Health premium estimator tool available here.
