The Essential Plan
Keep your health insurance plan benefits! If you have The Essential Plan, you must renew your plan once a year, on or before the anniversary of when you signed up.
Here’s what you need to know:
  • – You will receive a notice from either NY State of Health (NYSOH), the Human Resources Administration (HRA), or the Local Departments of Social Services (LDSS) before your anniversary date. Make sure you open and read the notice to get all the details about how to renew your health insurance plan.
  • – If you do not already have an online account, create one at NYSOH today so you can:
    • – Confirm or update your mailing address
    • – Confirm or update your language preference
  • – If your income changed during the year and you were switched to another health insurance plan, or your coverage was canceled or denied, it’s not too late. You may still be eligible to re-apply for a plan.
We can help you through the process and answer your questions. Our dedicated reps can even contact you and NY State of Health to coordinate the renewal of your health insurance. Let us know how we can help. Just complete the form to the right and we will contact you.
