My Personal Experience Finding Affordable Care Act Insurance in New York State
by Liz Jackson
I have spent the last 15 days navigating New York’s Health Exchange, and it has been quite a learning experience. This process has had a lot of ups and downs. And while I don’t want to admit this, the downs started very quickly. Getting a NYS Government ID turned into a comedy of errors. After a multitude of failed attempts, I eventually had to create an ID under my partner’s email address. I was then able to change the ID to my email address once I had finally succeeded in logging in. The effort it took to get logged in proved worthwhile, as my healthcare is now a lot more affordable.
