NYS Health Department/Child Health Plus
TTY 877.898.5849
Children's health insurance explained: New York State has a health insurance plan for kids, called Child Health Plus. Depending on your family's income, your child may be eligible to join either Children's Medicaid or Child Health Plus. Both Children's Medicaid and Child Health Plus are available through dozens of providers throughout the state. To be eligible for either Children's Medicaid or Child Health Plus, children must be under the age of 19 and be residents of New York State. Whether a child qualifies for Children's Medicaid or Child Health Plus depends on gross family income. Children who are not eligible for Medicaid can enroll in Child Health Plus if they don't already have health insurance and are not eligible for coverage under the public employees' state health benefits plan. Some children who were covered by employer-based health insurance within the past six months may be subject to a waiting period before they can be enrolled in Child Health Plus. Determining whether your child is subject to a waiting period will depend on your household income and the reason your child(ren) lost employer-based coverage. What is covered: Coverage includes health needs like: physical exams, immunizations, diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury, X-ray and lab tests, outpatient surgery, emergency care, prescription and non-prescription drugs if ordered, inpatient hospital medical or surgical care, short-term therapeutic outpatient treatment for alcoholism and substance abuse, and mental health, dental care, vision care, speech and hearing and durable medical equipment, emergency ambulance transportation to a hospital and hospice.
