How to find low-cost health care in your community

If you can't afford any health plan and don’t qualify for coverage through Medicaid and the Children’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
