Navigators providing free enrollment by phone for health insurance 

March 20, 2020 

NY State of Health, the state's health insurance marketplace, is offering a special enrollment period through May 15 due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, and AIM's Navigator Program is providing free local enrollment services by phone.

Call AIM Navigator Program Coordinator Laurette Guild at (888) 962-8244, ext. 118, to schedule a phone appointment with a navigator. Guild can also be reached via email at

Navigators can help people who need health insurance enroll themselves and their families in Medicaid, Child Health Plus, the Essential Plan or Qualified Health Plans from a variety of insurers. Eligibility is based on income and household size.

There is no cost sharing for COVID-19 testing in any of these plans, and all plans include comprehensive benefits, so people do not avoid seeking testing or medical care due to cost concerns.
