What do You need to apply for Medicaid in New York?

To get Medicaid in New York there are some things that you will need to provide to be able to apply for the coverage.  The lack of any or all of this information could delay or terminate your ability to get the coverage so being prepared is very important.  Put the following things together before you make any visits to start your coverage.

  • Proof of age, like a birth certificate is important so you can prove your identity to the offices that approve Medicaid coverage.
  • Proof of citizenship or alien status must be done so that you can confirm that you have the right to get Medicaid based on your citizenship status.
  • Recent paycheck stubs if you are working are important in part to confirm your income and in part to show that you don’t have coverage through your job.  Medicaid is a needs basis service and is not available to everyone.
  • Proof of your income from sources like Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Veteran’s Benefits (VA), retirement is also necessary.  This is to prove that you are getting support and how much of the support you are already getting.
  • If you or anyone who lives with you is 65 years old or older, certified blind, or certified disabled, you need to give information on bank accounts, insurance policies and other resources.  This is again to show the amount of support you are getting already so that Medicaid is distributed to the right people.
  • Proof of where you live, like a rent receipt, landlord statement, mortgage statement, or envelope from mail you received recently to show your residency.  Medicaid is issued by the state offices so you need to prove where you live.
  • Insurance benefit card or the policy if you have any other health insurance is required to show the level of coverage you should be allowed.
  • Medicare Benefit Card (the red, white and blue card) is necessary to confirm the status of this coverage as well.
