Here for you for 25 years

Healthfirst was founded in 1993 as a different kind of health insurance company. Today, Healthfirst serves more than 1.3 million New Yorkers with a range of health plans as diverse as our communities themselves. Perhaps that’s why there are so many stories of how Healthfirst is here for individuals like Gabrielle, Carol, and Arturo; families like the Moores and the Garcias; and businesses like Jaylen’s Auto Repair. To read just a few select stories, scroll down.

Plans are offered by affiliates of Healthfirst, Inc. Plans contain exclusions and limitations.

for Gabrielle

Gabrielle lives in the Bronx. She’s a new mom! That’s why now is the right time for her to find a health plan for the baby and herself. What’s really important to Gabrielle is being able to talk to her health insurance company in her own language—over the phone and in person.

With Healthfirst, Gabrielle and her baby can find a health plan with a $0 monthly premium and $0 copays, if eligible. They could have access to essential health benefits such as wellness visits, prescription drug coverage, hospital visits, lab services, pediatric services (including oral and vision care), and more. Our community offices and call centers are also staffed with representatives who speak many languages so members of different ethnic backgrounds can speak to someone in their language. Every day, we help New Yorkers like Gabrielle get the health coverage they need, and we can help you, too.

The Garcias are juggling work, raising two teenagers, and trying to make their two paychecks go a long way. Paying for a health insurance plan isn’t easy. If they just wanted any coverage, they could find it. But they want quality coverage from a company that’s in their community.

Healthfirst is that kind of company. We offer many low to no cost health plans, including the only 5-star rated Medicaid plan in New York State for four years in a row, The Essential Plan, and Child Health Plus (CHP). We also try to find financial aid for our members if they need help paying for their health coverage and prescription drugs. We also support communities all over New York City with health fairs, sponsorships, and many other local health initiatives. Every day, we help New York families like the Garcias get the health coverage they need, and we can help yours, too.

A few years ago, Jaylen left his successful corporate job to follow his dreams and open his own auto body shop in Manhattan. Business was slow in the beginning, but now his three employees can join him full time and qualify for health insurance. Keeping his employees healthy is very important, so Jaylen wants to find good health coverage that won’t stretch his budget. His employees live all over New York City, so having access to a large network of providers is high on his employees’ wish list.

With Healthfirst, Jaylen has a choice of health plans to offer his employees. These plans include comprehensive benefits, such as dental and vision coverage, no-cost annual checkups, a robust choice of in-network doctors, specialists, hospitals, and urgent care centers, plus access to 24/7 telemedicine, acupuncture, exercise rewards, and more. Every day, we help small New York businesses like Jaylen’s, and we can help your company, too.
