Health Center Locations for the Uninsured
What do you do if you have COVID and no insurance? Many people don’t know where to turn if they get sick and don’t have medical insurance. Rather than risk the possibility of incurring medical debt, many simply don’t seek medical care. This can lead to significant illness that otherwise was easily treatable. It is important for individuals and families to know that there are medical clinics available locally to treat uninsured individuals and help them additionally get medical insurance coverage.
The City of Cincinnati provides a healthcare search portal that allows one to designate what type of health care service one is searching for. The search results provide the phone number, hours of operation, and address of available health care clinics.
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services also has a search portal, which provides the phone numbers, addresses, and directions to locally available health care clinics. Instructions for the use of the portal are available in multiple languages. Their portal additionally allows you to export search results as a pdf. This pdf export function is helpful for disseminating information about locations of local clinics, but unfortunately does not include hours of operation. You’ll have to call the clinics directly for that information.
