    Blog: Free Help with Health Insurance Enrollment

    Do you find the annual open enrollment process for health insurance coverage confusing? Saratoga Hospital has a solution! Our Health Insurance Navigation program offers trained, certified navigators at no cost to help individuals, families, and small businesses through the enrollment process. 

    “This is a free service of Saratoga Hospital through a grant from the New York State Department of Health,” says Catherine Wright, BS, program manager of the Health Insurance Navigation program. “You do not have to be a patient of Saratoga Hospital to use this service, and we are available to all residents of Saratoga County. We are neutral regarding the various insurance options. The choice is completely yours.” 

    While open enrollment for hospital employees choosing employer-provided insurance ends November 15, the NY State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace open enrollment continues through January 31, 2020 for all qualified health plans. Enrollment in the Essential Plan, Medicaid and Child Health Plus is open all year.

    “Our navigators can also help you determine if you qualify for financial assistance with Saratoga Hospital to lower your costs,” Wright added. “We’ve got a great team of certified health insurance navigators that are compassionate and non-judgmental, completely dedicated to helping you through this process. Don’t wait until the last minute—call us now and make an appointment. You don’t have to do this alone.”
