Waiving with Medicaid

New York State Medicaid

If you have a NYS Medicaid product, you may need to change your Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) plan, as Fidelis Care, Affinity by Molina, and Molina are the only plans which provide comprehensive coverage in Ithaca. Please begin this process as soon as possible so you can meet the waiver deadline. To do so, you can contact the New York State of Health at 855-355-5777 or log into your personal portal at to request a change to your MMC.

Out of State Medicaid

Students with an out of NYS Medicaid product cannot waive. Students can evaluate choosing to move their out of state product to a NYS product. To do so, you must coordinate with your current state Medicaid resource and the New York State of Health to request a change.
