Brian Pugh: Health Insurance Deadline Is 1/31

Dear Neighbors:brian-pugh-group-cropped

I am writing to remind readers that the deadline for 2020  health insurance coverage through the NYS healthcare marketplace, New York State of Health, is Friday, January 31st.  The web site for the NY State of Health is: nystateofhealth.ny.gov

NY State of Health is a regulated insurance exchange meant to provide insurance coverage for individuals not covered by an employer’s insurance, Medicare or another plan.

Hundreds of residents of the Village of Croton are not insured, according to the Census.  The majority of these uninsured residents are native born US citizens. Most are children and young adults.

Health insurance protects from unexpected, high medical costs. Insurance also means free preventive care, like vaccines, screenings, and check-ups.

Please remind your family and friends to make sure they have health insurance coverage.

For assistance with enrollment, you can contact the NY State of Health’s helpline 1-855-355-5777. The helpline is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Sincerely,

Brian Pugh, Mayor
