Any Medicaid-eligible individuals qualify for the program. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian can apply on your behalf. Members living at the same household or address also qualify as long as they do not share economic resources.
Visit SafeLink.com/MEDSTAR to apply online (this is the fastest way to enroll) or call SafeLink Wireless at 877-631-2550.
Please allow approximately 1-2 weeks for your enrollment to be approved.
To keep your SafeLink benefits, members must make at least one phone call or send one text message each month.
If there is a technical issue with the phone, the SafeLink Wireless representative will attempt to troubleshoot the issue. If the issues persist, SafeLink Wireless will replace phones that are still under the 1 year warranty. A phone might not be replaced if it shows signs that it has not been taken care of.
