Paying for health care services

Health care services can be very expensive if paid for out of pocket. If you are lucky enough to have insurance coverage through your employer or university, that is wonderful! The back of your insurance card usually has a phone number you can use to call a nurse 24/7 for advice. It may also have directions on how to access information about which local health care providers are considered “in-network” for you.

If you are looking to purchase a health care insurance plan on your own, a good place for you to start looking is Access Health CT.

In some cases, you may be eligible to join the Husky program which offers a comprehensive health care benefit package, including preventive care, primary care and specialist visits, hospital care, behavioral health services, dental services, and prescription medications.

Is the health care language and system confusing for you?

Don’t worry! There are simple resources out there for you to use to learn more about the basics such as what copays and deductibles are, how to interpret doses and dosage information for medicines, and how to stay healthy overall. You can start by exploring the award-winning resources created by the Florida Literacy Coalition.
