Description:

Note: An intern selected from the School of Public Health, University at Albany may be eligible for academic credit and to be reimbursed for their service. Interested students from this institution should contact the Director, Internships & Career Services at the school for details.

The Policy & Planning Team of the NY State of Health is seeking a summer intern. The Policy & Planning team's objective is to provide qualitative and quantitative support to NY State of Health staff and other NYS agency partners when making NY State of Health policy decisions.

Responsibilities for the team intern may include, but are not limited to: targeted research on a range of health policy topics, compilation and analysis of NY State of Health eligibility and enrollment data, and analyses of results from consumer satisfaction surveys administered by the NY State of Health.

Background: NY State of Health, New York's Official Health Plan Marketplace, is designed to help people shop for and enroll in health insurance coverage. Individuals, families and small businesses can use the Marketplace to help them compare insurance options, calculate costs and select coverage. The Marketplace uses a single application that helps people to check their eligibility for health care programs like Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and the new Essential Plan and enroll in these programs if they are eligible. The Marketplace also tells what type of financial assistance is available to applicants to help them afford health insurance purchased through the Marketplace.
