Documents you will need to enroll

You will need proof of:

  • Identification
  • New York City residency
  • Household income
  • Household size

NYC Health + Hospitals will also ask you to confirm that you've lived in NYC for six months or more.

Patients who have already been screened for insurance through the NYS of Health Marketplace can bring a printout of the results of the determination and will not need additional documentation.

If you are unable to provide the required documents, we still may be able to help you enroll.
