HEALTH INSURANCE

Looking for health insurance? Depending on your situation, you may also be eligible for medical assistance (also known as Medicaid) through the Pennsylvania HealthChoices program. You can apply for or renew your Medical Assistance online by using COMPASS. You can apply by telephone for healthcare coverage by calling 2-1-1 for a free health insurance enrollment appointment with the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions such as HIV. This means that you cannot be dropped from your policy or denied coverage because of your HIV diagnosis. Learn more here.
