ActionHealthNYC completed its one-year demonstration on June 30, 2017.

As of July 1, 2017, there is no longer a formal program called ActionHealthNYC. There is no opportunity to enroll for ActionHealthNYC at this time.

If your income, or immigration status has changed since you applied last year for ActionHealthNYC, you may be eligible for public insurance or other affordable health care options.

You may have also signed up for or renewed your Emergency Medicaid last year at the same time you applied for ActionHealthNYC. Emergency Medicaid is different from ActionHealthNYC. Emergency Medicaid is a separate program that helps you pay for the cost of getting care at the emergency room.

Limited Enrollment

The ActionHealthNYC program had limited available openings during this first year. The program hopes to expand in the future and allow more people to enroll.

Confidentiality

Your personal contact and medical information that was collected for the ActionHealthNYC research study is kept private.

Billing Problem

If you were an ActionHealthNYC Member and got a bill for health care services that you think is incorrect, or if you are unable to pay your bill, you should first speak to your doctor's office or the billing department where the bill came from.

ActionHealthNYC completed its one-year demonstration on June 30, 2017. The research study ended December 31, 2017.

If you participated in the ActionHealthNYC research study, you will not be able to enroll now as a member of ActionHealthNYC but this does not affect your participation in the research study nor your ability to get health care.

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.

If you want to change the Primary Care Home where you get the majority of your health care, you can start going to a different place for low-cost services. 

You can go to the Action Health NYC page. On the webpage, there is a link that lists low-cost health care options in NYC. You may call any of those locations to begin receiving care regardless of income or immigration status.
