If you do not have health insurance and need care, you can still access health services.
New York City's public hospital system and local community health centers provide medical care on a sliding-fee basis, depending on your income.
This care is available to everyone, even if you are an undocumented immigrant.
In addition, emergency care is available at all NYC hospitals regardless of immigration status or ability to pay.
In addition, under NYS law, all hospitals in New York State, including private hospitals, must have financial assistance programs to make non-emergency healthcare affordable to all patients regardless of their immigration status.
You can find affordable hospitals and health care clinics in your neighborhood by visiting FindAHealthCenter.HRSA.GOV. Insurance is not required.
