Healthy New York
The Health Care Reform Act of 2000 introduced the Healthy NY program to provide more affordable health insurance to New Yorkers who need it most. Healthy NY, in partnership with HMOs and other insurance companies in New York State, offers comprehensive health insurance to small businesses. DFS oversees the program.

Healthy NY includes comprehensive coverage for essential health benefits including inpatient and outpatient hospital services, physician services, maternity care, preventive health services, diagnostic services, mental health services, chiropractic care, prescription drugs, ambulance and emergency services.
As of January 1, 2014, Healthy NY no longer provides coverage for individuals or sole proprietors. Instead, the New York State of Health Marketplace can help individuals and sole proprietors shop for and enroll in health insurance. You may qualify to receive assistance to help pay for insurance offered through the Marketplace.
