Do I Qualify?

MAP provides health care coverage for Travis County residents with low income, who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medicaid or Medicare and do not have private insurance.

To get more information or find out if you qualify call the Central Health Customer Service at 512-978-8130 Monday-Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm.

A Customer Service representative will need to ask you some questions to determine if you qualify for MAP. Some of the things you may be asked about are:

  • Address
  • Family size
  • Income
  • Insurance

MAP and MAP BASIC are not federal programs therefore are not impacted by the new “Public Charge” regulation the Federal Government has proposed.   The new Public Charge regulation is not expected to take effect until Oct. Central Health is monitoring the changes and will provide more information as it is available.

All uninsured Travis County uninsured residents eligible for MAP and MAP BASIC should continue to enroll without fear of impacting their path to a green card.
