Stay Connected with a Free Phone Plan!

Did you know, as a PCHP member, you may qualify for free wireless services? HEALTHfirst (STAR Medicaid) members can apply for service through the Assurance Wireless Lifeline and temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit Programs. Eligible members can get free unlimited data and cell phone service, plus a free phone.  

Assurance Wireless Lifeline/EBB benefits include:

  • Free smartphone.
  • Free unlimited data*, texts, and voice minutes.
  • Free 10GB of monthly hotspot data.

*During congestion, heavy data users (>35GB/mo.) and customers choosing Assurance or similarly prioritized plans (e.g. T-Mobile Essentials, Metro by T-Mobile) may notice lower speeds than other customers due to data prioritization.

PCHP members also receive:

  • Health education messages from Text4Babies, Text4Kids, Text4Health, Care4Life, and Text2Quit.
  • Health tips and reminders by text.
  • Calls to PCHP Member Services that don’t count against your monthly minutes.
