"With three days left to enroll in Qualified Health Plan coverage starting January 1st, NY State of Health in-person assistors are participating in events throughout the state in locations ranging from food pantries to libraries, answering questions about health coverage and enrolling consumers into quality, affordable health plans," said NY State of Health Executive Director Donna Frescatore.
