Rural Broome Counts (RBC) is a needs-assets assessment project that takes a deeper look at the 11 rural townships in Broome County (townships with 200 people per square mile or less). RBC completed its initial assessment, and has released a full report for use by all stakeholders. RBC will be updated every three years so that we can track rural Broome County’s status and provide information for other planning efforts such as the Broome County Community Health Assessment, Aging Services Plan, Coordinated Transportation Plan, and others.

The third open-enrollment period to select a health insurance plan for 2016 ended on January 31, 2016. During this time, residents of New York State were able to enroll in a health insurance plan, switch plans, or apply for cost assistance.

REMEMBER, if you missed open enrollment you will not be able to sign up until the next open enrollment period (except in limited Special Enrollment cases).

Uninsured Americans (for 2016) will be penalized $695 per person or 2.5% of their household income, whichever is higher. Households will be penalized for uninsured children (under age 18) at half the adult rate ($347.50). The maximum dollar amount an uninsured family can be penalized is $2,085.
