How do we stay healthy when we cannot afford health insurance? How do we go through pregnancies to have a healthy baby, how do we care for newborn babies. How do we keep our little ones healthy as well.

They can enroll in more than 475 patient assistance programs, access more than 2,500 medicines, learn how to contact government programs for which they may qualify, such as Medicaid or Medicare.
