Help for Uninsured

There are still way too many people left without medical insurance.  Some are among the poorest who are caught in the NC Medicaid Gap and do not qualify for any financial help.  Others just can’t afford to buy insurance (even with subsidies.)  We’ve listed some of the free and sliding-scale options in your county here.
