Accessing care can be hard even if you have insurance. There are many free or low-cost programs for individuals to receive medical care, especially in New York City, for people who are uninsured or underinsured and have insufficient coverage. These options are often based on a sliding fee scale, which means that low-income people will pay a lower fee than people with higher incomes. Also, many of these affordable programs are open to all individuals, regardless of their immigration status.
CHA can help you find a location near you and access free or low-cost care for the following:
- A physical or immunizations
- Hospital care, including surgery
- Dental care
- Family planning services
- Cancer or chronic disease services
