Getting Care While Uninsured

There are many reasons you might find yourself uninsured. Whether you became unemployed and can’t afford COBRA, accidentally missed open enrollment, or moved and had HMO coverage in another state, being uninsured can create a barrier to care.

Since you still have healthcare needs while in this transition, we have developed some materials to help guide you in finding quality care. There are available options for locating good care at low or no cost. The services may be received through a local sliding scale clinic, a university or teaching hospital, or through a clinical trial. We encourage you as well to reach out to the Health Insurance Marketplace as soon as possible to find out if you are eligible to enroll in a plan now. The Marketplace can help you discuss your options for enrollment in full coverage by calling toll-free (800) 318-2596 or visiting
