Community Healthcare Network Holds Health Insurance Enrollment Drive

With only weeks left before the federal deadline on March 31st, Community Healthcare Network is holding events to sign up New Yorkers – many who are still uninsured - for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Most New Yorkers must enroll in a qualified health plan this year or could face a penalty.

Community Healthcare Network has trained bilingual community outreach educators able to assist people with education, selecting the right coverage, and applying for insurance.

The event aims to help those individuals who need more information on health insurance, the ACA, and the importance of primary health care, and get hands-on help with enrolling online.

Since the NY State of Health marketplace launched on Oct. 1 last year, more than 900,000 people have completed applications and 600,000 have enrolled for coverage. After March 31, the next period to enroll will be November 15th for coverage that starts the following year.

The event is free; advance registration is not required; however, CHN advises that anyone who wants to sign up for insurance needs to bring a New York State photo identification, social security card, and four recent pay stubs. Individuals who are non-residents or were recently granted residency or a legally present status within the US should bring their green card, work visa, or resident card.
