Consolidated Health Centers
Located across the nation, these centers serve as the family doctor?s office to many who are struggling to pay for health care by providing preventative and primary care services to families. Many individuals and families in the U.S. rely on a Health Center for primary care. To locate a Health Center in your area, visit: http://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov. The Health Centers provide services to all residents of the service area without regard to an individual's ability to pay.

Medicaid
The Medicaid Program provides medical benefits to low-income people who have no, or inadequate, medical insurance. Medicaid is a joint Federal/State program administered by each individual state. Each State develops its own rules related to eligibility and coverage within broad Federal guidelines.

State Children's Health Insurance Program
The State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) is a partnership between the Federal and State Governments that provides health coverage to uninsured children whose families earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but too little to afford private coverage.
