New insurance options are now available in New York

The Institute for Family Health invites patients to visit any of our health centers for help with their application. To find your nearest location, click here.

Many patients may qualify for free coverage or financial assistance to help with the cost of these new health insurance plans. The new “New York State of Health” Marketplace website will help you pick a plan that best meets your needs, the needs of your family, and your budget. Using the same application, you can also see if you now qualify for Medicaid.

Buying health insurance is especially important now. Health insurance helps you afford your health care and avoid paying a large amount of money if you get seriously ill. Starting January 1, everyone is required to have insurance or pay a tax of up to $285.00.

The Institute for Family Health’s centers accept Marketplace plans from Affinity Health Plan, Health First, and Health Republic.

Please call or come into any one of our health centers to talk to our social workers, case managers or access specialists about getting a health plan that is right for you and your budget. No appointment is necessary.
