Help Available for Uninsured

I was alarmed to see this story about nearly 235,000 local residents without health insurance:

It is sad to see so many people in need. Do you realize that 140,00 people in this county receive Medicaid? That is one in six county residents.

I have a feeling some of the people in this 235,000 crowd would qualify for Medicaid, but do not apply. The program is available for low-income residents who are disabled, for children and their mothers, for those over 65 and some others. Please visit our Web site, www.hcjfs.org for more information and, if you qualify, please reach out to us.
