Health & Disability Access

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.

NYC Health + Hospitals

NYC public hospitals provide health care for everyone. If you are not eligible for public insurance, and if you cannot purchase health insurance through the New York health exchanges, your bill can be reduced to an affordable amount, based on the size of your family and your annual income.

Financial Assistance at all New York Hospitals

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.

Affordable Health Care Clinics

You can find affordable hospitals and health care clinics in your neighborhood by visiting FindAHealthCenter.HRSA.GOV. Insurance is not required.
