Am I eligible to be a patient at CoSMO?
CoSMO treats men and women over the age of 19 who are ineligible for government sponsored health insurance and who live in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx.

Patients who will most benefit from CoSMO are those who need a primary care doctor who they can rely upon for high quality continuity of care.

In New York City ALL children under the age of 19, as well as ALL pregnant women, are provided Medicaid. If you are either under the age of 19 or pregnant and have been unable to find healthcare, please contact us. We will connect you with the services provided at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. You may also access the care directly by coming to 21 Audubon Avenue between 9am and 12 noon on Saturday and speaking with the program enroller who is stationed in the lobby of the building.

Where does CoSMO get its funding?
CoSMO obtains its funding through a combination of donations from private individuals and grants from philanthropic organizations. The vast majority of CoSMO’s annual budget is actually composed of in-kind contributions of time and services by the volunteers and the partner organizations. In addition, the clinic could not exist without the support of Columbia University, particularly the School of Nursing and College of Physicians and Surgeons.
