NEW YORK, NY, AUGUST 03, 2021 – Healthfirst, the largest not-for-profit health insurer in New York State, is committed to its mission to help its members access high-quality healthcare. As part of that effort, the company is keeping its members connected to healthcare services and providers by participating with Assurance Wireless in the federal Lifeline Program which provides free Android™ smartphones and no-cost cell phone service to those that are eligible .

"If there is one thing that became apparent during the pandemic, it was the importance of access to telehealth services. As we continue to pursue Health Equity, it is our hope that making the Lifeline Program available to eligible members via Assurance Wireless is an all-around win for our members, their physicians, and Healthfirst," said Errol Pierre, SVP, State Programs at Healthfirst. "Members will also be able to download the Healthfirst member app onto their smartphone to access in-network care (including telehealth), locate nearby essential services, and view digital member information and benefits."

  • Unlimited texting and 1,000 Monthly Minutes

Special extras for Healthfirst members include:

  • Feature-loaded Android smartphone
  • Healthfirst updates and reminders by text
