In the two weeks since the launch of NY State of Health, over 40,000 people have successfully enrolled in health insurance plans via the marketplace – more than in any other state thus far. Approximately 500 in-person Assistors/Navigators have been trained and are providing high-quality enrollment assistance in all counties, in a total of 48 languages. Technicians have been working around the clock, making enhancements to the online portal in order to ensure quick and easy access to information.
