Good news is coming to the NY small group health market – 2017 New Small Group Health Carriers NY. As of April 1st, 2017 there will now be seven insurance carriers serving the downstate NY small group market. This is up from five carriers in 2016. The new carriers are Oscar and HealthFirst. These join previously available Aetna, Care Connect NSLIJ, Empire BCBS, Emblem, and Oxford United Healthcare.
Choice and competition is always a good thing for consumers and businesses, and having 7 plans competing for business is a welcome change from where we were only 5 years ago.
