GetCoveredNYC Campaign Surpasses 2017 Health Insurance Enrollment Goals
GetCoveredNYC is an initiative started by NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2016 to help all New Yorkers enroll in health insurance and have access to primary and preventive care. As of the close of Open Enrollment on January 31, 2018, over 2,267,000 New York City residents are now insured through the New York State of Health, the health insurance marketplace created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). GetCoveredNYC helped to enroll 80,000 New Yorkers in health insurance plans during the past year, surpassing the goal to enroll 50,000 New Yorkers in 2017.
CPC partnered with GetCoveredNYC to help raise awareness for the various health insurance options available to them in New York State. "Chinese American-Planning Council has been proud to partner with GetCoverdNYC to provide essential health insurance assistance to those in need," said Wayne Ho, President and CEO of Chinese-American Planning Council. "We commend the Mayor for his efforts to secure quality coverage and care for New Yorkers."
