Health Insurance: All students in New York City public schools up to the age of 18 are eligible for public health insurance at minimal or no cost. School records show that over 10% of our school children are uninsured (approximately 144,000). The Office of School Health collaborates with the Office of Citywide Health Insurance Access (OCHIA) to provide access to public health insurance to our students and their families through the schools.
