Mt. Sinai Beth Israel - Mt. Sinai has 7 hosptial campuses throughout the New York Metropolitan area. Their Queens campus is Mt. Sinai Hospital of Queens. (NOTE: Queens Hospital Center and Elmhurst Hospital Center are affiliated with Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, however this does NOT mean that all carriers that have Mt. Sinai/Beth Israel in their network also include Queens and Elmhurst Hospitals). Carriers with Mt. Sinai/Beth Israel in their network include EmblemHealth, Oscar, Empire, and United Health Care
New York Presbyterian - NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, based in New York City, is one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive hospitals.

If you need New York Hospital of Queens in your network you have acces with the following carriers: EmblemHealth Empire, United Health Care and Oxford. Oscar will no longer include NY Presbyterian or its affilited providers in their network as of March 31, 2016.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center - New New York City has the highest incidences of cancer in the country, and if you or someone in your family currently has cancer or a history of cancer you may need Memorial Sloan Kettering in your network.

Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield (EPO) - Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield (EPO) - Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield (EPO) - Empire Pathway Network is the network for individuals, families and small businesses. They have a very strong network and currently participate with all the the major hospitals in Queens. They had some of the largest premium increases in 2016, now making them among the highest in the Marketplace, however due their substantial network, many individuals may find them to be one of their best options. Qualifying individuals and families who apply on-Exchange can get subsidies to reduce their premiums. Plans are available to individuals and families (On/Off), or Small Business plans (Off).
EmblemHealth (HMO) - SelectCare is the name of the network offered by EmblemHealth to individuals families as well as small businesses.

United Healthcare (HMO) - United Healthcare’s Compass Network is the insurance company's Qualified Health Plan (QHP) network and is comprised of approximately 40,000 providers. Most of the major hospitals in Queens accept the Compass plans.
Premiums are approximately 30% higher than average, making them among the highest of the carriers. Because they are available on-Exchange, premiums may be reduced for those who qualify for a subsidy. This carrier is available to Individuals and Families (On).
In 2016 the New York State of Health is offering new, highly affordable plans to low income individuals called "Essential Plans." UnitedHealth Care's Essential Plan is provided through their Community Plan Network, and qualifying individuals can choose a plan which offers medical coverage only, or they can upgrade their plan to include vision and dental coverage for a minimal increase in premium. Their provider network is somewhat limited compared to that of QHPS, however they include most major hospitals in New York.
Depending on income and family size, the cost for these plans is either $20 per month per person (for medical only) with no deductibles and small copays for services; or they are completely free with no premium, deductibles or copys. Qualifying individuals may enroll in Essential Plans all year long. Call JayMar Insurance to see if you qualify.

For small businesses, premiums are still at least 30% higher than that of the other carriers. Plans are available to Individuals (Off) and Small Business (Off).
