Free insurance-enrollment assistance available

Nov. 7, 2016

Open enrollment at NY State of Health, the state's Affordable Care Act marketplace, is underway, and AIM's free Navigator Program can help.

Open enrollment began Nov. 1 for new enrollees with NY State of Health. For those who already have coverage through the marketplace and want to renew or change health plans, open enrollment begins Nov. 15.

Open enrollment ends Jan. 31.

AIM has a team of six navigators to help people compare health plans on the NY State of Health website, enroll in coverage, and receive help paying for their coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Eligibility for subsidies is based on income and household size. Consumers may qualify for Medicaid or the low-cost Essential Plan, or get tax credits that lower monthly premiums for health plans from a variety of insurers.

The AIM Navigator Program covers Steuben, Chemung, Schuyler and Allegany counties. Evening and weekend appointments are available.

For more details or to book an appointment, call (607) 962-8225.
