NYC Health + Hospitals/ NYC Care


NYC Care is an option for low-cost or free health services in New York City. The services are available citywide for  New Yorkers who do not qualify for or cannot afford health insurance based on federal guidelines.


  • Keep in mind that NYC Care is not health insurance. NYC Health + Hospitals’ health care access program guarantees services to uninsured New Yorkers.
  • NYC Care offers a membership card, a regular doctor, high-quality customer service, affordable prescriptions, and more, as if it were health insurance.
  • There are no membership fees, monthly fees, or premiums. You will pay based on what you can afford.
  • Call (646) 692-2273 to find more information and apply to NYC Care.
