How do I apply for the Essential Plan?

It’s never too late to apply for the Essential Plan! New Yorkers can enroll in the Essential Plan year-round.

You can enroll in the Essential Plan by calling the MetroPlusHealth Member Services line at (855) 809-4073 or stopping by one of our many offices throughout the five boroughs, from Staten Island to The Bronx.

We even have special Marketplace Facilitated Enrollers who have been specially certified to help New Yorkers like you understand and enroll in programs like the Essential Plan.

Because it’s an income-qualified program, you have to let the state know of any changes throughout the year that could impact your eligibility. But don’t worry, we can help you with that, too.

Just get in touch! We’re always here to help.
