FACILITATED ENROLLMENT FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED PROGRAM (FE-ABD) is a New York State-sponsored public health insurance application assistance program for people who are aged, blind or disabled. We educate and assist New Yorkers with enrolling in Medicaid and the Medicare Savings Program (MSP)

Facilitated Enrollment consists of private, one-on-one counseling about Medicaid and the Medicare Savings Program. We can meet with people at our offices, various public locations, or in special circumstances go to  the home to mitigate barriers that might prevent someone from applying.


Those who are aged (65 and over), blind, or disabled.
