New York State of Health

***If you missed the open enrollment period for New York State of Health, the official health plan Marketplace, there is now a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for families who had to pay a federal penalty for 2014 and had not been aware of had not understood that they would have to pay a penalty for not having health insurance coverage. 

To read the full  press release from New York State of  Health, click here.***

The second open-enrollment period to select a health insurance plan begins on November 15, 2014 and runs through February 15, 2015. There are many insurance options to choose from, which makes it easy to find one that will be affordable for you. Enrolling in health insurance will also protect you from paying the tax penalty for uninsured Americans, which is increasing in 2015. Uninsured Americans will be penalized $325 per person or 2% of their household income, whichever is higher. Households will be penalized for uninsured children (under age 18) at half the adult rate ($162.50). The maximum dollar amount an uninsured family can be penalized is $975.
