What Providers will be Onsite?

We highly encourage all APS families and staff to attend if they are still uninsured and/or struggling financially.

  • A Medicare specialist will be available to help those with questions regarding Medicare options.
  • Healthcare enrollment experts will help enroll families or individuals in Medicaid, answer questions and provide emergency cards to both adults and kids (some conditions apply). Families can get enrolled in less than an hour. Medicaid can also be used as secondary insurance.

Medicaid Enrollment and Eligibility Information

Medicaid Enrollment

To expedite on-site Medicaid enrollment, please bring:

  • proof of citizenship
  • immigration status or tribal enrollment
  • a photo ID
  • proof of residency
  • proof of all household income, including benefits (for the past month)
  • current insurance information and/or recent unpaid medical bills

Medicaid Eligibility

Non-citizens may be eligible as well. For recertification, only new proof of income along with a picture I.D. is required. We may not need all of the above documents to enroll, but we highly encourage clients to bring them since their case may be expedited if all documents are provided at the time of enrollment.

“Because health-related issues can be barriers to learning, APS is working on ways for students and families to be healthier,” said Brian Bolding, Medicaid enrollment coordinator in the APS Student, Family, and Community Supports Division. “We at APS believe that a healthier student is a more successful student.”
