*Please note that members with Medicare will continue to be covered by Medicare for these services.

Depending on your eligibility for Medicare and Medicaid, Community Life may be available at no cost to you.

  • If you are eligible for Medicare and Medicaid and do not have a spend-down,* there is no cost to you for Community-Life covered services.
  • If you are eligible for Medicaid only and do not have a spend-down,* there is no cost to you for Community-Life covered services.
  • If you live in the New York City service area, your spend-down is determined by the New York City Human Resource Administration. (HRA).
  • If you live in Westchester or Putnam County, your spend-down is determined by the Local Department of Social Services (LDSS).

*Spend-down, which is also known as surplus, is the difference between your monthly income and the monthly Medicaid rate.

Also, there is no additional cost to you for authorized covered services in the Community Life provider network. However, if you choose to access services on your own that are not covered or obtain services of a nonparticipating provider that are not authorized by Community Life, you may be subject to payment for those services.
