Health Insurance


Need it? Not sure how to get it?

We can help. Our trained insurance enrollers at each of our health centers can help you find the insurance that is right for you. For instance, there are a number of health insurance programs available through the New York State of Health Marketplace, Child Health Plus (free or low-cost monthly premiums) and Medicaid (no monthly premiums)  for those who may have difficulty accessing or affording health insurance directly from private insurance companies.

Having health insurance is a requirement of the Affordable Care Act and we can help you meet that obligation.

At Finger Lakes Community Health, insurance is available to all adults and children free of any cost to you.  We have trained financial advocates who are familiar with community services and resources and special health insurance programs and work diligently to assist people in their search for accessible and affordable health insurance. They will help you understand the coverage you qualify for, help you select the best program to meet your needs, review the documentation for your application, and then help you complete the application. Services are available throughout the community at convenient daytime, evening, and weekend hours. Give us a call!
