New York State offers free and low-cost public health insurance programs for low-income New Yorkers. These plans provide medical care through a fee-for-service or a managed care plan. HRA/DSS, through its Medical Assistance Program division (MAP), is responsible for the administration of public health insurance. MAP determines and maintains eligibility, based upon income and/or resource levels, for each of the available health insurance programs and their related services.
Individuals and families can qualify for public health insurance even if they have income, own a house, own a car, have a bank account or receive private health insurance. Persons and families who are low-income, or receiving SSI or cash assistance, are automatically eligible. Pregnant women, children, persons over 65 and people with disabilities are also eligible.
Plans include: Medicaid; Child Health Plus; Family Health Plus; Medicare Savings Plan (also known as Medicare Buy-In); Medicaid Buy-In Program for Working People with Disabilities; and the Family Planning Benefit Program.
To obtain further details about these programs and services, or to apply, please visit any one of the Medical Assistance Program Offices.
If you are already receiving Medicaid or Family Health Plus, use these Medicaid Renewal Instructions.
The Medical Information Privacy Notice details medical information, privacy rights, access to information, and details concerning how medical information about you may be used and disclosed.
