All NYC Care services are provided through NYC Health + Hospitals. BronxWorks is one of 30 community-based organizations and one of four in the Bronx who work with NYC Health + Hospitals to enroll new members in this program.

In the last two years, I have come across many clients who weren’t able to receive medical services due to their immigration status. A client I met expressed that his daughter is disabled and he also has a serious health condition. I was able to assist him and enrolled him for NYC Care. He received his first primary care appointment within two weeks and only paid $2 for medications. The client called me right after his doctor appointment and cried over the phone expressing how happy he was.”

In 2019 alone, we enrolled 4,320 people without insurance into a health plan.
