“Get Covered Grad” is a new partnership between The State University of New York and NY State of Health (NYSOH), the State’s official health plan Marketplace, to help recent graduates learn about the Special Enrollment Period (SEP) they may qualify for.

Upon graduation, many graduates may find themselves without health insurance coverage or the ability to remain on their parent’s policy. SEPs allow uninsured individuals who experience certain qualifying life events to enroll for health coverage through NYSOH outside of the annual open enrollment period.

To help increase awareness of these SEPs and the availability of low cost plans through the marketplace, NYSOH has developed a resource kit for campus administrations to use in helping students plan for the future. The College Toolkit includes:

“As our graduates embark on life after college, it is imperative that we inform them of the many programs and services that New York State has available to ensure a seamless and productive transition…”
“SUNY is proud to partner with New York State of Health on this important initiative to increase awareness among SUNY graduates regarding their options for health insurance.”- Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher
