Need Help Finding Health Care? Use These Tools!
If you are looking for help finding healthcare, Healthcare.gov has some great tools for you to use. Using their website, you can compare coverage and pricing on health insurance in your area .
In addition, if you are looking for a health clinic, Healthcare.gov offers a portable version of the "Find a Health Center" tool available online from HHS. The portable version is available for free download from iTunes. Federally-funded health centers provide checkups, treatment, pregnancy care, immunizations, dental care, prescriptions, mental health, and substance abuse care, even if you don't have insurance.
Finally, as a recent article pointed out, new high-risk pools that have opened up in many states have room for new individuals. If you have a pre-existing condition and have not been insured in six months, please check out PA Fair Care or the insurance option in your state.
