What to Bring for On-Site 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 past month)
  • current insurance information and/or recent unpaid medical bills
  • to enroll in LiHeap (energy assistance) we need a copy of your most recent electric/bas bill/s

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 as their case may be expedited if all documents are provided at 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.”
