  • Social security numbers for all family members
  • If you are a permanent resident, bring permanent resident card for all family members.

    W-2s and documents from all other sources of income)

For new Medicaid patients, any time during the year, we can help you complete a health insurance application for:

  • Adult Medicaid
  • Medicaid Presumptive Eligibility (MPE)
  • Moms and Babies
  • All Kids

For existing Medicaid patients who have another Primary Care Provider (PCP) but have a health plan accepted at VNA we can help you make the switch to a VNA PCP any time during the year.

For uninsured women with a recent diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer, VNA can complete a ‘fast track’ application to get health insurance coverage for your treatment within 1-2 weeks. Contact our Illinois Breast & Cervical Cancer Program at (630) 526-7912 x 8535.

For new Medicare patients, we can help you learn about Medicare insurance AND help you make a smooth transition from Medicaid (or another health insurance) to Medicare.  VNA accepts Original Medicare (Parts A & B), Medigap/Supplementary Plans, and Medicare Advantage Plans.

NOTE: If you have a non-Medicaid health Insurance plan through the Marketplace and you need RENEWAL assistance, we have found the quickest way to get your answers is to phone the Marketplace Call Center directly for immediate assistance.
