The state health insurance marketplace will reopen Saturday through Feb. 15. Promoters of the website -- which last year enrolled 960,000 people, 75% of whom received financial assistance -- have improved the user experience in the following ways:

A new "plan and compare" guide will ease shopping, while another feature allows consumers to get a personalized premium quote without completing an application.

A Spanish version of the website, nystateofhealth.ny.gov/spanish will debut during the enrollment period.

Information sessions will be held throughout the state. Schedules and locations can be found at info.nystateofhealth.ny.gov/events. In-person assistance will be available in 48 languages through the call center: 855-355-5777.
