If you find yourself with no insurance plan either because your employer does not offer insurance plan as a advantage of employment or just because you can’t afford the health insurance plan as it’s being offered there may be other inexpensive alternatives that you could investigate.

Based on your income you & or some of your family members may qualify for Medicaid or at the very least the SCHIP insurance plan that’s provided as a supplement to working families that can’t buy or aren’t offered insurance plan through their employer. While this may only provide health insurance plan for a portion of your family this may help alleviate at least portion of the responsibility.

There may be additional options that might be able to assist you. For example there are actually many groups & organizations that offer discount insurance to their members and if you or a family member are part of one such organization this can enable you to obtain your health insurance plan for a lower rate. Such groups include and just to name a few but there are various organizations that give insurance plan advantages.

If you’re without the means to have health insurance plan then you ought to at the very least buy a discount health card.

Usually proof of income and such is needed at these health care services and they should be thought about a final resort option for treatment.
