Healthcare Resources

Healthcare Resources 

Having access to affordable healthcare is important. Health Insurance can be provided through the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, or through an employer. Other Healthcare Resources may also be available to someone without insurance. Financial assistance for prescriptions may also be available.

Affordable Care Act (ACA) Insurance


The Affordable Care Act, also known as the ACA or "ObamaCare," provides health insurance to millions of Americans who would not otherwise have insurance through their job, Medicare, or Medicaid.

Medicare provides health insurance to people age 65 and older, people under age 65 who have received Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for at least two years, and people under age 65 who have end-stage renal disease that requires dialysis.
