Mar 29, 2018
NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens announced today it is again hosting an IDNYC pop-up enrollment site, weekdays through April 20. 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 on the fourth floor of the N Building from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site will remain closed from 1 to 2 p.m. for lunch. NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens last hosted an IDNYC enrollment site in May 2017.
“NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens is pleased to again 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 who have 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 and 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.
