• Plan Details

  • Affinity takes your health and wellness very seriously. We want as many people as possible to obtain quality health care at an affordable price. That’s why Affinity is offering the Essential Plan.

    What is the Essential Plan?

    A new health plan for New Yorkers that costs much less than other health plans. The Essential Plan offers the same essential health benefits you get with other health plans but at a more budget-friendly price. And depending on your income or immigration status, you could qualify for free coverage.

    Who can buy it?

    Lower-income people who don’t qualify for Medicaid or Child Health Plus.

    Household size Most you can make
    1 $24,120
    2 $32,480
    3 $40,840
    4 $49,200

    How much does it cost?

    Either $20 a month per person — less than a dollar a day or $0 (FREE). New in 2017, sign up for the Essential Plan and get additional vision and dental benefits for $48.02 a month or less.

    How else does it save me money?

    The Essential Plan has no deductible, so it starts paying for your health care right away. You get free preventative care, like routine doctor exams and screenings to keep you healthy.

    What does the Essential Plan cover?

    The same services covered by other plans:

    • Doctor visits, including specialists
    • Tests ordered by your doctor
    • Prescription drugs
    • Inpatient and outpatient care at a hospital

    How do I enroll?

    Call us directly at 866-247-5678, and we will help you apply. Or, you can enroll by visiting the NY State of Health Marketplace.

    When can I enroll?

    ANYTIME! That's right—you don't have to wait until Open Enrollment to sign up. You can find out if you qualify today.
