How to Enroll in iCircle Care

  • Call 1-844-iCircle (424-7253). You will speak with a Care Representative who will provide you with an overview of iCircle and review the requirements for the plan you are interested in, and help you determine whether you meet the eligibility criteria.
  • iCircle will need to determine whether you are a current recipient of Medicaid. If not, we will arrange for a Medicaid Specialist to contact and assist you in completing a Medicaid Application.
  • Once you decide to enroll, an Enrollment Nurse will schedule a visit with you to complete a comprehensive assessment of your health and safety, as well as your home and environmental surroundings. The nurse will review and provide detailed information about the iCircle Care plan and provider directory as well as review the member handbook.
  • From these assessments, a personalized plan of care will be generated.
  • Enrollment begins on the first day of the month after your application is processed.
  • iCircle Care is a product of iCircle Services, which helps CNY residents who are Medicaid eligible have access to quality health and community-based services.
