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.
