East New York will host an Open Enrollment Information Session during the Healthy NYC Expo, Presented by ShopRite, Saturday Nov. 4, 2017 at the Brooklyn Sports Club. EmblemHealth will facilitate the session, answering questions that residents might have regarding health care, including Medicare, Medicare Advantage and Medicaid.
With the uncertainty of health care during this time, and questions that New Yorkers might have about Medicare, this Open Enrollment Information Session is even more important to attend. For those who are turning 65 soon or already have Medicare but want to switch plans, then this session will answer any questions they might have. For example, you can switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan or possibly qualify for medicaid with your medicare, and become eligible for a Dual Plan/SNP. Your coverage for medicare will be effective on January 1 of the upcoming year, however coverage for Dual Plan/SNP will begin the next month.
“We are happy to have EmblemHealth on board to provide this valuable session during the Healthy NYC Expo.”, stated Vernon Jones Sr, CEO of JIG Media. “Attendees will be able to get answers and clarity about the Open Enrollment process, which is so important during this time when people are nervous about their health coverage.”

At EmblemHealth, we are committed to initiatives that bring resources to the communities we serve and we look forward to telling Brooklyn residents about the wide range of plans we have available to suit their healthcare needs.” – Courtney Jay, Director of Corporate Communications for EmblemHealth.
