Planned Parenthood of New York City will take care of you no matter what!
We have Financial Counselors who will help you get public or private insurance for the services we offer. If you are eligible, our Counselors can help you enroll in Medicaid, Child Health Plus, the Medicaid Family Planning Benefit Program, or an Essential Health Plan or Qualified Health Plan, the new private insurance plans created under the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). To find out more, see Financial Help or call (212) 965-7000 or 1 (800) 230-PLAN.
If you already have Medicaid or Child Health Plus and have questions about using this health coverage, please see Insurance Information.
To find out if you might be eligible for free birth control and other services, learn about the Medicaid Family Planning Benefit Program.
If you are unable to obtain any of these insurance programs, our health centers may still be able to offer you financial help, depending on your income and the services you need. To learn more, see Financial Help. To ask questions or make an appointment with a Financial Counselor, please call (212) 965-7000 or 1 (800) 230-PLAN.
As Certified Application Counselors, our Financial Counselors can also help you navigate “New York State of Health,” which is the Official Health Plan Marketplace where people can enroll in both Medicaid and the new insurance plans that are available through the Affordable Care Act. The aim of this federal law is to make health insurance and health care more affordable for many more Americans. For example, the health care law means that you may be able to get birth control and some related visits with no co-pays! PPNYC’s Financial Counselors can help you enroll in the new insurance plans (called Essential Health Plans or Qualified Health Plans). To learn more about the Marketplace, go to www.nystateofhealth.ny.gov or call toll-free 1 (855) 355-5777. To make an appointment with a Financial Counselor, call (212) 965-7000 or 1 (800) 230-PLAN.
