Learn more about Medicaid Managed Care (.mp3)
Fidelis Care Medicaid Managed Care, a New York State-sponsored health insurance program, provides personal care from your own doctor, hospital and emergency care, prenatal care, eye exams, eye glasses, and more. Fidelis Care Medicaid Managed Care is comprehensive coverage with no copays for covered services and there is no monthly premium for the coverage for those that qualify. With Fidelis Care Medicaid Managed Care, we encourage you to choose and use your own doctor. Your doctor is also called your primary care provider (PCP) and can be seen for all your regular health care. When necessary, your PCP can refer you to a specialist. Fidelis Care also covers emergency care for medical problems that need immediate attention.
