    If you are in the US and have no health insurance
    But need medical help, go to an area hospital ER or to a walk-in clinic. At the hospital, you will be triaged according to the severity of your medical problem. For mental problems, go to an ER or clinic in order to connect up with a social worker who will guide you though the mental health care maze. Or, for mental health support/counseling, call your local village/township/county mental health or human resource office for info on low-cost or sliding-scale help. Many Catholic priests and Protestant ministers will provide counseling of all kinds (and you don't have to join that church, but they may ask for a donation to that parish). If you're a military veteran, a VA hospital will treat you for free. If in doubt about any of this, call the reference desk at your local library for more specific information, phone numbers, and contact names/places.

    I am a single mom with four kids and have no health coverage. Generally, most areas have a free clinic of some kind that will help people with no insurance for a very small fee or for free depending on your income. They aren't the best of places but beggars can't be choosers. I have been to several free clinics and they have helped me very much.

    Getting any type of medical assistance at clinics or ER's is much better than none. Emergency Rooms will NEVER refuse treatment.

    You can also get grants for low income/no insurance. These things are why I do not understand why we are being pushed into Obama care.
