Expanding Health Care Coverage


February 7, 2014

2013 was a landmark year for expanding health care coverage, with the October 1 launch of the health insurance marketplaces established as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to enroll millions of uninsured Americans, including more than 1 million New Yorkers, into health care coverage options.

NYHealth has funded a range of outreach and enrollment efforts to help as many New Yorkers as possible gain health insurance coverage as the ACA is implemented. Ensuring that individuals and small businesses have the resources to understand their insurance coverage options and enroll is integral to the success of health reform.
