However, if you currently find yourself without health insurance this is a problem that can be rectified at this very moment. Right now you can secure health insurance for you and your family during New York State of Health's open enrollment period.

I have definitely been in the position where I was in between radio gigs and to make ends meet I was doing ac couple side DJ'ing and security work. Sure those jobs helped pay the bills but I was still without health coverage. Of course anytime you have a lapse in coverage it seems to be the time when you are going to get hit with the worse sickness and without insurance the cost of just a doctors visit or generic prescription can be sky high.

Luckily you don't have to be put in that position because right now you can get quality, affordable health insurance coverage through NY State of Health during their open enrollment period which goes until January 31, 2018. Your premiums really depend on you, your family, and your income  so it's definitely at least worth checking out.
