The Affordable Care Act makes health insurance available and affordable to many New Yorkers who were previously uninsured. The NY State of Health™ is the official Health Insurance Marketplace operated by the New York State Department of Health (DOH).
In October 2013, NADAP was awarded a five-year contract by the DOH to provide In-Person Assistor (IPA)/Navigator services for the NY State of Health™. NADAP’s IPA/Navigators educate New Yorkers on the availability of health plans and enroll individuals, families, and small businesses in Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and private health insurance through Qualified Health Plans. NADAP’s Navigators are equipped to provide on-site enrollment services and are able to engage patients in English, Spanish, French, Korean, and four Chinese dialects.
