Important Information Regarding Healthy NY

The New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) issued the following guidance regarding Healthy NY:

“...The program’s rules do not impose a uniform minimum number of hours that a person must work each week in order to be eligible for coverage, however, the rules are not intended to interfere with a Health Plan’s separate ability to impose a requirement of a minimum number of hours worked (11 NYCRR § 360.3(a)(3)).

Healthy NY subscribers enrolling with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield have to meet the minimum 20 hour work week to be eligible for coverage. Since 20-hour minimum is our eligibility standard for small group commercial business we need to apply the same standard to all of our small group coverage, including Healthy NY.

Read the entire DFS Healthy NY Program Guidance.

If you have additional questions, please contact your account consultant or broker.
