Gov. Cuomo: New York’s health plan open enrollment extended through March 31

The open enrollment period for New York residents looking for a health plan has been extended through March 31, according to an announcement made by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Residents can apply for coverage through NY State of Health, New York's Official Health Plan Marketplace, or directly through insurers.
"Ensuring all New Yorkers have access to health insurance is essential, not only as we continue to fight the war against COVID, but to foster healthier, more resilient and more equitable communities as we rebuild post-pandemic," said Gov. Cuomo in prepared remarks. "By extending this deadline until March, New Yorkers who need health coverage will have additional time to enroll and find the plan that works best for themselves and their families." 
Residents can apply for coverage at the State of Health website or by phone by calling 1-855-355-5777.
