New York Outreach and Enrollment Summits 2015

Navigators, health advocacy groups, health insurance plans, community groups, healthcare facilities, Certified Application Counselors, unions and small business representatives will come together to examine best practices, and share strategies, resources and partnerships to maximize enrollment in NY State of Health, the state’s insurance marketplace, taking into account the introduction of the Essential Plan in 2016.  Participants will be able to volunteer for a number of enrollment and outreach tasks, and get their organizations involved.

Local groups should come to the summit that covers their region. Statewide groups are urged to send their local affiliates.
