Additional Background

Poughkeepsie Galleria is featuring a “Sign Up NY” booth where in-person NY State of Health “assistors” provide information on enrollment and help determine if those without health insurance qualify for financial assistance. Research shows that some individuals who lack insurance may still be unaware of their potential eligibility for financial assistance. In fact, during the last enrollment period, 9 out of 10 people received help paying for their coverage.
