NEED HEALTH COVERAGE? WE CAN HELP.
If you live in Travis County and are uninsured, we can help you get access to local doctors, specialists, and pharmacies through our Medical Access Program (MAP), MAP Basic, or through one of our healthcare partners.
What is MAP and MAP Basic?
Medical Access Program (MAP)
Central Health’s Medical Access Program (MAP) is a health coverage program for uninsured Travis County residents with low income. With MAP you and your eligible family members can see a doctor, a dentist, and get medicine.
If you are not eligible for MAP you may be eligible for MAP Basic, which provides access to a doctor, dentist and medicines, but has a more limited level of services.
Are you Eligible for MAP or MAP Basic?
MAP and MAP Basic eligibility is based on the income you received in the last 30 days. Uninsured Travis County residents with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level qualify for MAP or MAP Basic if they meet all other eligibility criteria. See the table below.
*Based on FY 2023 FPL. Levels are updated annually on March 1.
Learn more about Federal Poverty Levels (FPL) and what this means for your coverage.
