Child Health Plus

Child Health Plus is a New York State-sponsored health insurance program for kids under the age of 19. 

Who Can Apply?

Almost every child in New York State is eligible, regardless of family income or immigration status. Only the monthly premiums vary based on income, and can be free or as low as $9 per month. There are no copays or deductibles. 


You can enroll in Child Health Plus year-round.


In addition to routine and preventive care, benefits include diagnostic testing, treatments, and emergency services. Always check with your Primary Care Provider to find out if a referral is required for any additional health services you might need.

Child Health Plus covers prescription or non-prescription drugs listed in the formulary with no cost-sharing as long as they are ordered by a provider within the Fidelis Care network.
