HEALTH INSURANCE NAVIGATORS
Our trained navigators can help you find insurance in the marketplace.
Need Low Cost or Free Health Insurance?
NY State of Health is a marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses can shop for, compare and buy health insurance coverage. It is also a place to receive financial assistance to reduce the cost of coverage.
Call us to learn more about your options on the NYS of Health Marketplace. We have state certified navigators to assist you in finding out about subsidies and tax credits available to off set the cost of health insurance. There are many plans available that are low cost or no cost at all. Let us help you find the right insurance for you and your family.
Anyone can apply on their own online. However, New York State makes it easier for all New Yorkers to enroll in the marketplace by providing in-person assistance with a certified Navigator.
The Health Initiative has trained Navigators to help St. Lawrence County residents understand the marketplace and their options. We understand that it can be difficult to travel and take time off to use this assistance, therefore we have enrollment opportunities for you at over 13 different sites across the county. Our navigators will even be available on some evenings and Saturdays!
What will you need to get Health Insurance? You should know, and be prepared to show proof of:
- Address, Date of Birth, Social Security Number
- Information regarding your Citizenship, Immigration Status
- Proof of Employment, Household Income, Income Tax
- Medicaid Benefit, Unemployment Information
Are you a small business? We will come to your place of business to help you work through the marketplace. Simply email Jerome (click here) your available times, and we’ll work with you!
