Affordable Care Act
The New Health Insurance Marketplace
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is requiring all NYS residents to have health insurance in 2014. As part of the Affordable Care Act, the S2AY Rural Health Network has received funding to assist individuals, small businesses owners, sole proprietors, and families in finding affordable health insurance.
Free Help Accessing Health Care and Health Insurance:
The S2AY Rural Health network is dedicated to assist consumers with their health care needs. In partnership with the Community Service Society of New York, and the United Way of the Southern Tier, we are able to offer the Community Health Advocate Program to individuals, families, sole proprietors, and small business owners free of charge. The program is designed to assist consumers in finding affordable health insurance options, help client’s access health care services, such as prescription assistance programs, and assist clients in utilizing their health insurance once they have it. We are available to assist clients with Medicare and associated programs, as well as refer appropriate consumers to the Navigator program for assistance in enrolling through the New York State Official Health plan marketplace.
If you are having an issue navigating through health insurance options, understanding the Affordable Care act, or accessing health care services, please call Ariel, Cassie or Caleb at 607-962-8459.
