Health Insurance
If you or your family don't have private health insurance, but you don't qualify for public health insurance plans like Medicaid, you still have options.

You can get medical and mental healthcare at little or no cost at the public hospitals and health centers run by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC). Teens can be seen at Adolescent Health Centers in the public hospitals and large diagnostic and treatment centers, where doctors and nurses provide reproductive and adolescent healthcare.
