The New York State Department of Health's NY State of Health insurance marketplace began its second open enrollment period Saturday.

Thousands of certified assistors, navigators and brokers statewide are now available during the enrollment period to assist consumers with the entire process. Specially trained navigators from Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will provide assistance at locations across Niagara County.

"All existing marketplace qualified health plans will expire Dec. 31," said Christin Culligan, Memorial's director of health insurance in-person assistance/navigation. "This year, individuals will need to determine if they want to stay in their current plan or change plans. Open enrollment will continue until Feb. 15, 2015, but to have a plan in place by Jan. 1, you must enroll by Dec. 15."

Consumers must make an appointment in order to be seen. To request an appointment, call 716-278-4264 or email [email protected]. The navigator's weekly schedule, effective today:
