ActionHealthNYC

The ActionHealthNYC program will end its one-year demonstration program on June 30, 2017. Enrollments are not being processed at this time.

All New Yorkers, including ActionHealthNYC participants, can access health care services at hospitals and health centers across NYC.

If you have a regular doctor, you should continue to go to your regular doctor for services.

If you do not have a regular doctor, you can view and download the following lists of low cost health care options in New York City.

You can call any of those locations to seek care regardless of income or immigration status.

In the case of an emergency, any hospital in New York City will care for you, regardless of your immigration status or ability to pay. You will not be turned away.
