There are three Medicaid offices currently operating in Manhattan as of January 2016, according to the NYC Department of Social Services. People can visit the Chinatown Medicaid office at 115 Chrystie Street, the Metropolitan Hospital Medicaid Office at 1901 First Avenue or the Manhattanville Medicaid Office at 520-530 West 135th Street. Officials temporarily closed a fourth location, the Bellevue Hospital Medicaid Office, located at 462 First Avenue.

The Medical Assistance Program helps certain individuals enroll in Medicaid at any Medicaid office location, explains the NYC Human Resources Administration. Qualifying individuals include people aged 65 and over, disabled people, some people who receive Medicare and young adults under the age of 26 who were part of the foster care system. Other individuals should apply for Medicaid through the NY State of Health website or by phone. For more information about available health insurance programs, New York City residents can visit the Office of Citywide Health Insurance Access.
