Connecting People to Healthcare
It is estimated that 13% of adults and children in Williamson County are currently uninsured.
United Way of Williamson County is taking an active role in connecting Central Texans to healthcare and is working to close the gap so everyone can be insured and have access to quality care when they need it most.
Our goal is to help create a community where individuals are living healthier lives by increasing the number of individuals with health coverage.
• Inform the public about their health coverage options
• Help families and individuals find health coverage that fits their health needs and budget
• Educate individuals about their health coverage plan
• Connect low-income individuals and children to Texas Benefits including CHIP, Medicaid, SNAP and TANF.
Through a federal grant awarded to a regional consortium, United Way of Williamson County has Healthcare Marketplace Navigators available on staff to educate and assist central Texans with the enrollment process.
Navigators are state and federally certified to provide unbiased information and assistance for individuals, families, and small businesses. They are local resources for enrollment into qualified health plans in the Marketplace, and public programs including Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. In addition, navigators have a broad knowledge of local programs and can provide referrals to those unable to qualify for Marketplace programs.
