How to find low-cost health care in your community

If you can't afford any health plan and donโ€™t qualify for coverage through Medicaid and the Childrenโ€™s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), you can get low-cost health care at a nearby community health center.
How much you pay depends on your income. Community health centers are located in both urban and rural areas. They provide:
  • Prenatal care
  • Baby shots
  • General primary care
  • Referrals to specialized care, including mental health, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS
