This toolkit is intended to provide caregivers and advocates for low income consumers with an understanding of what New York's Health Insurance Exchange has to offer their patients and clients. New York opened New York State of Health: the Official Health Plan Marketplace on October 1, 2013. The Marketplace represents a tremendous advancement in providing access to affordable health insurance coverage and has the potential to reduce the ranks of New York's uninsured by over a million people. New York's Marketplace implements three fundamental advancements for low income patients and consumers as laid out in the federal Affordable Care Act: New application technology, Expanded eligibility for Medicaid, and Federal subsidies to help those over‐income for public programs afford private insurance.
