What is New York State of Health (NYSH)? New York's Health Insurance Benefit
Through the Affordable Care Act, the New York State of Health is
a new Health Plan Marketplace that individuals, families, and small businesses can
use to buy health insurance. Enrollment begins on October 1, 2013 for coverage effective
January 1, 2014.
Health plans offered in the NYSH must meet an array of criteria
including essential benefits, limits on cost-sharing, adequate provider networks,
and follow new insurance market rules like prohibitions on capping pre-existing
condition coverage. Plans are assigned "metal tiers" of Bronze, Silver, Gold, and
Platinum, providing the same essential benefits. Differences in plan rates are based
on region, plan level, tobacco use and age.
