  • Plan Details

  • Affinity believes that every child deserves access to quality healthcare. That's why we offer Child Health Plus, a New York State sponsored health insurance program for children under the age of 19 who do not qualify for Medicaid. Child Health Plus now covers many more children, giving them great health care and the opportunity for a brighter future. And with Affinity, you get access to over 45,000 providers and more than 100 of New York's best hospitals, including those that specialize in helping teens and children. Children may qualify regardless of their parents' immigration status.

    To be eligible for Child Health Plus offered through Affinity, children must:

    • be under 19 years old
    • live in New York City, or in Nassau, Orange, Rockland, Suffolk or Westchester counties
    • not have Medicaid or Medicare
    • not have any other health insurance
    • not have access to the New York State Health Insurance Program (NYSHIP)

    With Affinity, your child will get access to a full range of healthcare services and benefits, including:

    • Emergency room visits
    • Well-child visits
    • Prescription drug coverage
    • Dental, hearing and vision care
    • Immunizations, lab tests and X-rays

    How much does Child Health Plus cost?
    Your child's premiums could range from $0 to $203.27 per month per child, depending on your income and family size.

    Call us at 866.731.8001 (Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) for help in determining how much it will cost you. You will need to provide income information for every member of your family that is currently working.

    In certain situations, your child's premiums could be less with Child Health Plus than with an insurance plan through your employer.

    You can also visit the New York State of Health site and use their Tax Credit and Premium Estimator.
