The Federal Affordable Care Act requires that everybody obtain health insurance.

If families have questions about health insurance enrollment, please view Coverage at a Glance to explore coverage options and to apply for insurance online using the NY State of Health website. Students and their families who do not qualify for Medicaid or Child Health Plus may enroll online in private health insurance during the next open enrollment period, which will open on November 15 and close on February 15. Families may also have an opportunity to enroll in private health insurance outside of this time period if they have had a qualifying event, such as job loss, birth of a child, etc.Please note that students and their families who qualify for Medicaid and/or Child Health Plus can enroll online in these programs all year long; however, they should do so as soon as possible to avoid paying a penalty.
