Sign up for Health Insurance Under the Affordable Care Act

Mayor Lovely Warren is encouraging Rochester citizens to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. 

The Central Library, select City branch libraries and R-Centers will host numerous events offering information and individualized help with using the Health Insurance Marketplace, which helps the uninsured to enroll in health coverage.

"Everyone deserves to live a healthy, vibrant life,” said Mayor Warren. “I’m asking citizens to reach out to friends, family, and neighbors to let them know that their health is important to all of us, and if they don’t have health insurance, that help in securing health insurance is readily avaialble.”

The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. December 15 is the last day to and to ensure coverage by January 1, 2015.

If you’re currently enrolled in a 2014 Marketplace plan, your benefit year ends December 31, 2014. To continue health coverage in 2015, you can renew your current health plan or choose a new health plan through the Marketplace during open enrollment. If you don’t have health coverage during 2015, you may have to pay a fee.

Starting November 15 and continuing through February 14, 2015, HealthCare Navigators will be available at participating branch libraries and City R-Centers on select days and times.

The Central Library will offer individualized assistance to patrons every Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting Wednesday, November 19.

HealthCare Navigators from Trillium Health, Law New York and Action for a Better Community will give free, in-person application assistance to individuals and families at initial enrollment and when renewing coverage. Navigators remove barriers to the application process by providing assistance in multiple languages, in community based settings during non-traditional hours such as evenings and weekends.

Those looking for assistance in enrolling are asked to bring current income documents such as paystubs for the past 2 months. No appointment is necessary.
