Healthy New York
The Healthy New York program was introduced as part of the Health Care Reform Act of 2000. Healthy New York provides need-based health insurance coverage for those who qualify. The program is overseen by the New York State Department of Financial Services and is subject to state law and regulation.
All HMOs in New York are required by state law to offer Healthy NY. The program’s benefit package (along with state funding) provides more affordable health coverage including inpatient and outpatient hospital services, physician services, maternity care, preventive health services, diagnostic services and emergency services.
