Dear fellow New Yorkers struggling with health insurance:
The NY specific web page is nystateofheatlh.ny.gov
It is much more user-friendly than healthcare.gov. There is one confusing section: In the “current insurance” section it asks for your carrier and policy number – but not all carriers are available on their drop-down list. If you cannot find yours, LEAVE THE CARRIER BLANK. As long as you have an active ID and policy number it will be fine.
