State-based marketplace

State residents can purchase a health insurance plan during the Open Enrollment Period through the state-based marketplace, which is NYStateOfHealth.ny.gov.

Premiums typically vary throughout the state depending on where you live, meaning if your residence is in upstate New York, you’ll typically pay more money. In the city, there’s more competition and this drives the price down.

The website offers a comprehensive list that details how each plan compares to the other. There’s also a list of financial subsidies that are available for individuals who meet certain criteria.

History

When the local government decided to opt for a state-based marketplace, they spent nearly $40 million on advertising, so when people would search for the terms ‘NY State of health,’ they’d be automatically redirected to the official website.

These campaigns seem to be working as the Obamacare has really taken off in the state, driving the rate of uninsured individuals down drastically. If you’re really sure how to proceed about purchasing a health insurance plan, you can always call one of our representatives at HealthQuoteInfo at 855-614-5057.
