Enrolling for no- or low-cost state health insurance just got even easier.
Applicants can now be pre-screened by going to a Web site, www.enrollny.org and entering some basic information regarding their income and household makeup. The user-friendly site will then indicate whether the individual or family is eligible for programs such as Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus and Medicaid, and direct them to a “facilitated enroller” in the area for further assistance.
Thompson Health’s facilitated enrollers are authorized to assist both Ontario County and Wayne County residents with signing up for Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus and Medicaid. In a confidential atmosphere, they collect income, residency and citizenship information, assist in completing the applications necessary and forward the completed application to the correct agency. This is provided as a free service.
“While we always welcome and even encourage calls from those who are interested in a pre-screening over the phone, having the option of starting the process online is ideal for folks who may be at work during our normal business hours or who may just want to explore the option on their own a little before picking up the phone,” says Thompson Health Facilitated Enrollment Coordinator Lori Rivet.
