NY State Announces Special Enrollment Period for Uninsured New Yorkers to Get Insurance and Tested for Coronavirus

Through funding from the NYS Department of Health, CN Guidance and Counseling has partnered with Health and Welfare Council of Long Island to link individuals across Long Island with health insurance through the New York State marketplace. Together we engage underserved individuals in the community and not only assist them in navigating the complex health insurance system, but also provide advocacy and guidance in choosing a managed care plan or a primary care physician. Over a five year period, we aim to link over twenty seven thousand individuals with health insurance plans. We are confident that we will not only reach, but will exceed this goal. Affordability continues to be a major barrier to accessing quality physical health and behavioral health care. We aim to close that gap and to improve the quality of life for Long Islanders by increasing their access to health care and wellness services.

You can find assistance enrolling through the marketplace either by appointment, or by stopping into one of our community events. Search Central Nassau Guidance & Counseling Services to find out when we’ll be at a site near you!
