Health Insurance

Even healthy people need health insurance. Having a health plan helps maintain – and may even improve – the health and wellness of you and your family.

Having health insurance can also give you peace of mind. And it may protect you financially in the event of an accident or illness.

We can help you apply for health insurance you can afford. Make an appointment at one of our health centers.
