  • On-site Medicaid, SNAP (food stamps), LIHEAP (energy assistance), and TANF (cash assistance) enrollment (bilingual staff also available)
  • REDUCED COST: tablet or phone with unlimited wifi for those already on Medicaid (bring proof). Activation fees may apply: $20 for a WiFi connected tablet or $15 for a phone with 10 gigs of monthly data and calling.

  • Plus much, much more!

Presbyterian, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Western Sky Community Care will also be on-site, along with local healthcare providers and organizations, to answer questions and provide support to families and staff. A Medicare specialist will also be available to help those with questions regarding Medicare options.

Healthcare enrollment experts will be on-site to help enroll families or individuals in Medicaid, answer questions, and provide emergency cards to both adults and kids (some conditions apply). Enrollment can take less than an hour at this APS event! We highly encourage all APS families and staff to attend if you are still uninsured and/or struggling financially. Medicaid can also be used as secondary insurance.

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

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.”
