Individuals and families with incomes at or below certain levels ($46,680 for individuals and $95,400 for a family of four) may be eligible for financial assistance in the form of federal tax credits to help them pay for the monthly cost of coverage. In 2014, nearly three-quarters of individuals and families qualified for this financial assistance. New Yorkers may use the calculator on the New York State of Health website (nystateofhealth.ny.gov) to estimate their eligibility for tax credits; see: info.nystateofhealth.ny.gov/calculator

The next open enrollment period for individuals and families begins on November 15, 2014 for coverage starting on January 1, 2015. Enrollment in Medicaid and Child Health Plus is open all year. Small businesses with 50 of fewer employees can enroll anytime during the year.
