Affordable Care Act – Part 2

The New York exchange has been up for 10 days now and after some major bumps seems to be ready to enroll.  It’s got a new look and a new name – New York State of Health.

If you are planning to enroll the two-step process can take up to an hour.  The first step requires that you create a NY State Id – it’s a relatively simple process but you must have an e-mail account.  If you don’t and need help stop in or call the Reference Desk and we’ll set up an e-mail class to get you started.

After you have your NY State ID you can begin the enrollment process.

Here is a video that has been prepared to show you the process.

If the process seems daunting there is assistance available.

Visit nystateofhealth for a list of navigators. Navigators will sit with you and walk you through this mulch-layered process.

If you need more information contact the Syosset Public Library and ask for the Health Reference librarian.
