The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is an Agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. HRSA provides funds to Health Centers, hospitals, and other care facilities to help people get health care they can afford.
Health centers provide health and dental care to people of all ages, whether or not they have health insurance or the money to pay for health care.
Hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities are required to provide a specific amount of free or below-cost health care ("Hill-Burton" program) to people unable to pay. Eligibility is based on the size of your family and your income. You apply for Hill-Burton care at the facility where you were or will be treated.
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Programs are one option for uninsured and under-insured people living with HIV/AIDS for primary health care and support services.
