Application Process

1. Complete the MFPP application prior to your visit.
2. Schedule a clinic appointment with a provider and allow an extra 15 minutes to meet with the Insurance Coordinator to review application for Presumptive Eligibility (PE).
3. If possible, bring in two recent pay stubs (if employed) and proof of citizenship (passport or a copy of your birth certificate & picture ID).

Determining Coverage Eligibility

If qualified, presumptive eligibility (short-term coverage), is effective immediately.

Presumptive eligibility (short-term coverage) will be effective until the end of the following month.

One year of covered services will be approved after you provide the following documentation:
    • 2 recent pay stubs (if employed)
    • Proof of citizenship (passport or a copy of your birth certificate & picture ID)

You DO NOT need these documents to receive Presumptive Eligibility, PE (short-term, immediate coverage). However, presumptive eligibility will be granted only once per year. Therefore, bring these documents as soon as possible to receive coverage for one full year.
