The Health Department.
Cobra coverage is not affordable for millions of American's.Turning to your local Health Dept may be beneficial for those who need medical attention. Health Department's all over the U.S. offer a wide variety of services and some even offer dental. Every state has a health Dept but many cities and counties operate their own. Using this system is more cost effective because it's based on your income. If you are unemployed the visit should cost you little to nothing. Like everything the Health Dept has its pros and cons. About three years ago I used Broward County Health Dept in Florida for my annual check up. My only complaint was waiting 45 min to see a doctor. If you are in love with your Family Physician, you might find it difficult to see a new doctor. You can however have your medical records transferred so that your new doctor knows your medical history. If you have children this may be ideal. Do not put off going to the doctor. Contact your local Health Dept. If you have any questions about my personal experience feel free to ask.
Hope this helps and God Bless, Lissa Shevon
