The open enrollment period for coverage in 2020, starts November 1st for new consumers and November 16th for returning consumers.

According to data recently released from the U.S. Census Bureau, New York was one of only three states nationwide to see a decrease in its uninsured population in 2018. By opening this new location, MVP is providing unprecedented access and information about coverage options to the Fishkill community in order to provide health insurance to everyone who needs it. As the only in-person Enrollment Center in the area, interacting with MVP and signing up for health insurance is easier, more convenient, and more personal than ever.
As a part of its consumer focused approach to provide health insurance to those who need it, MVP staff at the Enrollment Center can help individuals and families decide what insurance coverage best fits their needs—including MVP’s options from the New York State of Health Marketplace, Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and Medicare insurance plans.

Additionally, working in partnership with community-based organizations throughout New York State, MVP also has also nearly 130 locations within the community that provide people with a variety of convenient ways to access MVP plans.
The MVP Enrollment Center will also offer free information seminars about Medicare as well as personal consultations with our MVP Medicare Advisors, health and wellness activities throughout the year, and much more.
