NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens to Host Pop-up IDNYC Enrollment Site
May 10, 2017
NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens announced today its hosting of an IDNYC pop-up enrollment site, weekdays from May 11 through May 22. Providing a convenient location for community residents to obtain an IDNYC card, this temporary enrollment center will be located at NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens, 82-68 164th Street (first floor of the Pavilion, Room P-128) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed from 1 to 2 p.m.).
“NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens is pleased to partner with the IDNYC program to bring increased services to residents who may already face greater barriers to resources, care and wellness,” said Christopher Roker, Chief Executive Officer, NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens.
IDNYC is a government-issued identification card available to all New York City residents 14 and older, with proof of identity and residency. The IDNYC municipal ID card is available to eligible New Yorkers regardless of their immigration status, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. IDNYC cards have been extremely popular since the program’s launch in January 2015, with more than 1 million people having signed up for the card.
IDNYC cardholders benefit from free memberships to 40 cultural institutions and discounts for movie tickets, sporting events, health and fitness clubs, New York City attractions, and grocery stores. More than 500,000 memberships at cultural institutions have been redeemed by IDNYC cardholders to date.
Although IDNYC is not required to access services at NYC Health + Hospitals locations, an IDNYC card provides the following health-related benefits for cardholders: discounts at health and fitness centers, including memberships to YMCA centers and NYC Parks Recreation Centers; access to vital health records such as birth and death certificates through the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene; and discounts on prescription drugs.
Appointments are preferred; walk-ins are not guaranteed. To make an appointment, visit nyc.gov/idnyc or call 311.
