Fund for Public Health in New York / New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

To evaluate how the New York State of Health (New York's health benefit exchange) is working, at least 800 individuals screened for eligibility for health insurance through the exchange will be surveyed at two points in time by facilitated enrollers. In addition to assessing early successes and challenges associated with implementing the exchange, the resulting report will assess respondents' motivation to seek health insurance, previous barriers to health insurance enrollment, and access to care.
