Do you have health insurance?

If you don’t have health insurance, you could be missing out.  There are many low cost or free health insurance options for people of many incomes.  For many, health insurance means access to preventive health care services. It allows your doctor to catch a health problem early. It can even help you avoid having to pay high medical bills.
