If you live in Travis County and are uninsured, we can help you get access to local doctors, specialists, and pharmacies through our Medical Access Program (MAP), MAP Basic, or through one of our healthcare partners on a sliding fee scale.
Central Health’s Medical Access Program (MAP) is a health coverage program for uninsured Travis County residents with low income. With MAP you and your eligible family members can see a doctor, a dentist, and get medicine.
If you are not eligible for MAP you may be eligible for MAP Basic, which provides access to a doctor, dentist and medicines, but has a more limited level of services.
All uninsured Travis County residents are encouraged to apply, regardless of their U.S. residency status.
Enrolling in MAP or MAP BASIC will not impact your path to a green card.
MAP and MAP Basic eligibility is based on the income you received in the last 30 days. Uninsured Travis County residents with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level qualify for MAP or MAP Basic if they meet all other eligibility criteria. See the table below.
To apply over the phone or in-person, call 512-978-8130 to start the application process.
You can download and print the application, fill it out, and mail it with your supporting documents to:
Medical Access Program, PO BOX 300489, Austin, TX 78703.
Click English or Spanish for your choice of application language.
If you are not eligible for MAP or MAP Basic, don’t worry. There are various resources that can help you access local, state, and federal health coverage programs.
