Message From Merle
At a time when Trump builds walls, Choices breaks down barriers to expand healthcare.
I take great pride in announcing that we now accept applications from non-immigrant temporary visa holders for enrollment in the Family Planning Benefit Program (FPBP), in accordance with New York State’s new policy. Now, temporary non-immigrants – including students, tourists, visitors for business, those who work in certain occupations, and others – can benefit from this important healthcare assistance so long as they are New York State residents and are determined to be otherwise eligible.
All patients who come to Choices can rest assured that their visit and any application for assistance will remain completely confidential. Your information is secure with us and will not be turned over to immigration authorities by Choices or New York State. When you come in for your appointment, you will speak to one of our FPBP specialists and find out if you qualify. You can get your medical care that very day.
FPBP provides free family planning visits and all forms of birth control (including emergency contraception, or the “Morning After” pill); and gynecological exams, including PAP tests and cancer screening procedures. It also covers pregnancy testing and counseling, and STD testing, counseling and treatment when part of a family planning visit.
I strongly believe that these services are by no means “optional” but are part of what should be considered basic healthcare for everyone. Where people are from, what their nationality, cultural or religious beliefs are, what their gender identification is, what their “papers” say or don’t say, should not disqualify them from the fundamental right of healthcare that all should have. We at Choices are determined to do our part in breaking down these barriers.
