What can I do if I don’t feel well and don’t have insurance?

  • Uninsured people, who are not feeling well should look for the nearest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). FQHCs are affordable health centers or clinics that receive federal funds to provide necessary health services in communities across the state.
  • If you think you may have COVID-19, be sure to reveal it when you call for an appointment. If you can’t go to an FQHC, call your local health department.
  • If you have a medical emergency, call 911 or call ahead and then go to the emergency department.
