In 2023 only, the State is extending Open Enrollment for Qualified Health Plans all the way to May 2024. This was announced in Crain's Health Plus on Nov. 7th, 2023. This extension is meant to coincide with the "unwinding" of the Public Health Emergency that ends in April 2024. Throughout this time, many Medicaid beneficiaries are going through the renewal process, and may no longer be eligible for Medicaid. Many will be able to transition to a Qualified Health Plan. See more about the "unwinding" for Medicaid recipients in New York State here.
However, in order to get coverage in a QHP for Jan. 1, 2024, you must enroll on NYStateofHealth by Dec. 15, 2023.
