State of Health special enrollment period extends through May 15
S.C. Leg. Jason Richberg reminds residents there is still time to obtain health insurance, as New York State of Health’s special enrollment period extends through May 15, 2020. Residents can apply online: nystateofhealth.ny.gov/ individual or by phone 855-355-5777. Free enrollment assistance is available through Health & Welfare Council of Long Island (HWCLI).
“While most New Yorkers have health insurance coverage, millions do not; this extension provides a timely opportunity for people to obtain health insurance,” said Richberg. “The CV19 pandemic underscores the need for access to healthcare.”
HWCLI President/CEO Rebecca Sanin said as COVID-19 continues to impact the economy, many Suffolk County residents are finding themselves unemployed and missing their employer sponsored health insurance. Health and Welfare Council of Long Island, helps people enroll in health insurance remotely and offers these services in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole.
For assistance, call 516-505-4426.
