How to reinstate your health insurance
If you are a New York state resident and have lost your health insurance coverage, you may be able to reinstate your coverage. To do so, you will need to contact your insurance company and request that your coverage be reinstated.
There are several reasons why you may have lost your health insurance coverage, such as if you have moved out of state or if you have lost your job. If you have lost your job, you may be eligible for continuation coverage under the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA).
If you are not eligible for COBRA or if you do not want to continue your health insurance coverage through COBRA, you can purchase an individual health insurance policy. You can purchase an individual health insurance policy through the New York State Health Insurance Marketplace.
If you do not have health insurance coverage and do not want to purchase an individual health insurance policy, you may be eligible for free or low-cost health care through the New York State Medicaid program.
