More questions about You First eligibility

If I have health insurance, can I use You First?

Yes, if you have Medicaid, Medicare Part B, or other health insurance, you can use You First services as long as you meet the other eligibility requirements. 

You First is not able to pay for screening services for members with Medicare Part B. Members ages 35-64 are eligible to use the lifestyle programs. 

If I’m a transgender woman or man, can I get cancer screenings?

You First can pay for breast and cervical cancer screenings when it's clinically appropriate and recommended by a health care provider—and when all other You First eligibility requirements are met. 

Talk to your health care provider about the benefits and risks of screening to decide if it’s right for you. We can also speak with you about what services you may be eligible for.
