Family Health Plus


Starting January 1, 2014, individuals should apply for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace: https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/

The Family Health Plus (FHP) program is ending December 31, 2014.  This requires that all FHP cases be closed or converted prior to this date. 

Family Health Plus is a public health insurance program for adults who are aged 19 to 64 who have income too high to qualify for Medicaid. Family Health Plus is available to single adults, couples without children, and parents who are residents of New York State and are United States citizens or fall under one of the many immigration categories.

Family Health Plus provides comprehensive coverage, including prevention, primary care, hospitalization, prescriptions and other services. There are minimal co-payments for some Family Health Plus services. Health care is provided through participating managed care plans in your area.
