Tuesday, Oct. 8, 6pm - 8pm
Lighthouse International, 111 E. 59th St. (bet. Lexington & Park)
Join us for a forum on what the new federal health care law means for New Yorkers. Starting January 1, 2014, New York will run a health plan marketplace, called New York State of Health. Individuals, families, and small business owners will be able to enroll in new, affordable health insurance plans through the marketplace. This system will bring a tremendous number of uninsured New Yorkers onto the insurance rolls.
Find out if you're eligible, how and when to apply, what benefits and plan options are available, details on financial aid to help pay qualified New Yorkers' insurance premiums, and details on tax credits for small businesses. Counselors will be on site to make an appointment to help you enroll.
Enrollment in the marketplace opened on the first day of October, and will continue through March 31, 2014. Financial aid to buy insurance is available for certain small businesses, individuals who earn up to $46,000 a year, and families with combined incomes of up to $92,200 a year (for a family of 4).
