 Medicaid and Family Health Plus

Who is eligible for MEDICAID?
You may be eligible for Medical Assistance if you receive Public Assistance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or if you meet income, resource, age or disability criteria. There are special programs to help if you are pregnant or have a child. If you are pregnant, a worker at the clinic or hospital you are using for prenatal care can assist you to apply for Medicaid. If you have a child, he/she may be eligible for Medicaid.

What is Family Health Plus?
Family Health Plus provides coverage to adults who do not have health insurance but have income too high for Medicaid. Parents and childless adults aged 19 through 64 are eligible if they live in New York State, have no health insurance and meet income guidelines. There is no cost to participate in Family Health Plus. Health care is provided through managed care plans. Family Health Plus will do its best to help participants continue to see their current doctor.
