Safelink Phone Program

Through a partnership with Safelink Wireless, Health Partners (Medicaid) members may be able to get a smartphone, with text messages, data and minutes each month at no cost.

Participating in the program makes staying on top of your health easier. You’ll have access to important health resources and be able to keep in touch with your doctors, family and friends. There won’t be any bills to pay or surprises with this wireless plan.

The Safelink Wireless plan includes:

  • A smartphone, free SIM card, 4.5GB of data and 350 monthly minutes
  • Unlimited text messages
  • Voicemail, caller ID and 3-way calling
  • 911 access
  • 411 directory assistance at no additional cost
  • Nationwide coverage
  • Calls to Member Relations at no cost that don’t count toward your 350 minutes
  • Calls to SafeLink support at no cost

To learn if you qualify for this federal program, call Member Relations at 1-800-553-0784 (TTY 1-877-454-8477).

Already Have a Smartphone?

You can keep your smartphone and still enjoy the features of this plan through the “Keep Your Own SmartPhone” program.

To keep using your current smartphone, you must have a compatible Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) phone (which includes T-Mobile and AT&T compatible phones). Your phone must also be unlocked. Several other carriers also use GSM networks.

Call your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) to learn if your smartphone is included.

More Details

In order to keep your phone benefits, make at least one phone call or send one text message each month. Unused minutes and data will not carryover from month-to-month (a month equals 30 days).
