Insurance Information

We are committed to helping residents in our community obtain health insurance. For those who do not have health insurance provided through their place of employment, there are options. Some may qualify for Medicaid—this is an income-based insurance and is mostly available for children and adults with disabilities who meet certain income criteria. HealthWest services are funded by Medicaid.



We are able to provide these services to anyone in our community; you do not need to be receiving services from HealthWest to receive assistance with the Marketplace or to apply for affordable health care.
