Welcome to UB Family Medicine

Our primary care offices provide excellent health care to patients of all ages, including babies, children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. We work with our patients to help manage chronic diseases, to care for urgent problems, and to maintain good health through preventive care. Our health care for women includes prenatal care, delivering babies, and routine gynecological care. We are happy to care for patients with disabilities. We administer three primary care offices in the Western New York Community, located in Buffalo (on Jefferson), Tonawanda (on Sheridan) and Amherst (on Hopkins). Our physicians also staff a primary care office run by Erie County Medical Center (Cleve-Hill Family Health Center on Kensington near Eggert in Buffalo).

NY Health Exchange Insurance Plans Still Available to Sign Up - For Some

New Yorkers who have not yet applied for a Health Insurance Plan on the New York State Health Exchange may still be eligible to do so if they have a qualifying “life event” such as:

  • Marriage
  • Having a baby
  • Adopting a child or placing a child for adoption or foster care
  • Moving outside your insurer’s coverage area
  • Losing other health coverage—due to losing job-based coverage, divorce, the end of an individual policy plan year in 2014, COBRA expiration, aging off a parent’s plan, losing eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP, and similar circumstances. Important: Voluntarily ending coverage doesn’t qualify you for a special enrollment period. Neither does losing coverage that doesn’t qualify as minimum essential coverage.
  • Gaining citizenship
  • Leaving incarceration
  • Gaining status as member of an Indian tribe. Members of federally recognized Indian tribes can sign up for or change plans once per month throughout the year.

 For more information, check the New York State Health Exchange or the US Health Exchange.
