Dear friends and community partners,
We are excited to announce that beginning this week, membership in NYC Care is now available to New Yorkers in each borough! NYC Care is a health care access program for people who are not eligible for or cannot afford health insurance. The program ensures all New Yorkers, regardless of their income or immigration status, have equal access to comprehensive, high-quality care. With NYC Care, you can:
Receive care at NYC H+H locations across the city.
Receive preventative care, mental health support, and substance abuse services.
Talk to customer service representatives in your language.
Receive 24 hour access to low-cost prescription medications.
Get your first appointment in two weeks or less.
To enroll, call 646-NYC-CARE.
To learn more about NYC Care, visit nyccare.nyc.
Since we launched NYC Care in August 2019, close to 30,000 members now have access to their own primary care doctor, expanded pharmacy hours, specialty care services, and a 24/7 customer service to help them navigate our system.
NYC Care members can benefit from personalized, coordinated care and, most importantly, the confidence and safety that comes from belonging to a system that cares about their health and their future.
With your determination and support, NYC Care will continue to bridge health disparities to make New Yorkers healthier as our communities continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Please join our effort to spread the word in your community about this important service through our multilingual fliers below (or click here for more resources):
In solidarity and community,
