Healthy New York
The Healthy New York program was created to assist individuals, sole proprietors and small business owners access health insurance for themselves and their employees.
IMPORTANT CHANGES have been made to the Healthy New York program. As of January 1, 2014, Healthy New York no longer provides coverage for individuals or sole proprietors.
Coverage for individuals and sole proprietors is available through New York's new health benefit exchange, New York State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace.
Small business owners (50 or fewer employees) can buy coverage directly from their insurer or from New York State of Health Small Business Marketplace through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). The Marketplace can help small businesses shop for and enroll in health insurance.
