Bridging the Health Gap: Addressing Health Disparities in Minority Communities

At HHM Health, our mission is to provide compassionate, accessible, and quality healthcare to all members of our community. Health disparities, which disproportionately affect minority populations, remain a significant challenge in the United States. In this blog post, we’ll explore the health disparities that persist among minority communities and discuss the role of community health centers like HHM Health in promoting health equity.

Understanding Health Disparities in Minority Communities:

Health disparities refer to differences in health outcomes and access to healthcare services among different population groups. Minority communities, including African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asian Americans, often experience higher rates of chronic illnesses, lower life expectancy, and limited access to healthcare. Factors that contribute to these disparities include socioeconomic status and cultural barriers.

The Role of Community Health Centers in Promoting Health Equity:

Community health centers like HHM Health play a vital role in addressing health disparities and promoting health equity for minority populations. Here’s how:

  1. Providing Accessible Healthcare: Community health centers offer affordable, high-quality healthcare services to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. This ensures that those facing financial barriers can still access essential medical care.
  2. Offering Culturally Competent Care: Health centers often have diverse staff members who are familiar with the unique cultural and linguistic needs of their patients. This helps to build trust, break down barriers and create a more comfortable environment for patients.
  3. Focusing on Prevention and Education: Health centers emphasize preventive care and health education, empowering patients to take control of their health and make informed decisions.
  4. Coordinating Care and Social Services: Health centers not only provide primary care services but also connect patients with additional social services, such as housing assistance, food support, and mental health services.
  5. Advocating for Health Equity: Community health centers work with local, state, and federal policymakers to advocate for policies that address health disparities and support the needs of their communities.

HHM Health’s Commitment to Health Equity:

At HHM Health, we strive to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care that addresses the unique needs of our diverse community. Our team of dedicated healthcare professionals is committed to:

  • Offering a wide range of medical services, including primary care, dental care, behavioral health, and specialty care.
  • Developing outreach and education programs that raise awareness of health disparities and promote healthy lifestyles.
  • Collaborating with community partners and local organizations to address social determinants of health.
  • Continuously work to improve the quality of care we provide and ensure that all patients feel welcomed, respected, and supported.

Addressing health disparities in minority communities is a complex and ongoing challenge. By providing accessible, culturally competent, and comprehensive care, community health centers like HHM Health are working to bridge the health gap and promote health equity for all.

The Power of Vaccines: Celebrating World Immunization Week

World Immunization Week is an annual observance that highlights the life-saving power of vaccines and the critical importance of immunization. As a community health center committed to providing compassionate, accessible, and quality healthcare, HHM Health recognizes the significant role vaccines play in preventing diseases and promoting public health. In this blog post, we will explore the incredible impact of vaccines on global health, emphasize the importance of immunization and discuss how HHM Health supports vaccination efforts in the community.

The Life-Saving Power of Vaccines:

Vaccines have revolutionized modern medicine, saving millions of lives each year and significantly reducing the burden of infectious diseases worldwide. Some of the remarkable achievements of vaccines include:

  1. Eradication of smallpox: Smallpox was a deadly infectious disease that claimed millions of lives throughout history. Thanks to a global vaccination campaign, smallpox was declared eradicated in 1980, making it the first disease to be eradicated by human effort.
  2. Near-elimination of polio: Polio, a crippling and potentially fatal disease, has been reduced by 99% worldwide due to extensive vaccination campaigns. Polio remains endemic in only a few countries, and continued efforts aim to eradicate the disease completely.
  3. Reduction of childhood illnesses: Vaccines have significantly reduced the prevalence of once-common childhood diseases, such as measles, mumps, and rubella, leading to healthier children and reduced healthcare costs.

The Importance of Immunization:

Immunization is crucial for maintaining public health and preventing the resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases. By ensuring that people are protected against these diseases, communities can achieve herd immunity, which safeguards even those who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons. Timely vaccination is particularly important for vulnerable populations, such as infants, pregnant women and individuals with weakened immune systems.

HHM Health’s Commitment to Supporting Vaccination Efforts:

At HHM Health, we are dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of our community through immunization efforts. Here are some ways we support vaccination:

  1. Providing accessible vaccine services: We offer a wide range of vaccinations for children, adolescents, and adults, making it convenient for families to stay up-to-date with their immunizations.
  2. Educating the community: We believe that informed patients make better healthcare decisions. Our team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing education on the importance of vaccines, addressing concerns, and dispelling common myths.
  3. Collaborating with community partners: HHM Health works closely with local schools, community organizations, and public health agencies to promote vaccination awareness and ensure widespread access to immunization services.
  4. Participating in vaccination campaigns: During public health emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, HHM Health actively participates in vaccination campaigns, helping to protect our community from the spread of infectious diseases.

The power of vaccines is undeniable, as they have saved countless lives and transformed global health. As we celebrate World Immunization Week, HHM Health remains committed to promoting vaccination efforts and ensuring a healthier future for our community.

Preventative Care: Simple Steps to Keep Yourself Healthy

At HHM Health, we believe that prevention is the key to maintaining optimal health and well-being. Preventative care involves taking proactive measures to detect and prevent diseases before they become serious health issues. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of preventative care and share simple steps you can take to keep yourself and your family healthy.

The Importance of Preventative Care:

Preventative care plays a crucial role in maintaining good health, reducing the risk of chronic diseases and improving the quality of life. By focusing on prevention, we can detect potential health problems early, when they are easier to treat and take necessary steps to prevent them from worsening. Preventative care is not only beneficial for your health but also helps reduce healthcare costs associated with the treatment of chronic diseases.

Simple Steps to Keep Yourself Healthy:

  1. Schedule Regular Checkups: Routine medical checkups are essential for monitoring your overall health and detecting any potential issues early. Make sure to schedule regular appointments with your primary care provider, even if you feel well.
  2. Get Vaccinated: Vaccines are a vital part of preventative care, protecting you from serious and potentially life-threatening diseases. Stay up-to-date with your vaccinations and consult with your healthcare provider about any recommended vaccines based on your age, health status and risk factors.
  3. Eat a Balanced Diet: A healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats is essential for maintaining good health and preventing chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
  4. Exercise Regularly: Engage in regular physical activity to help maintain a healthy weight, reduce stress, and lower the risk of chronic diseases. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity each week, along with muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days per week.
  5. Maintain a Healthy Weight: Excess weight can contribute to various health problems, including heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Work with your healthcare provider to determine a healthy weight for you and develop a plan to achieve and maintain it.
  6. Don’t Smoke: Smoking is a leading cause of preventable deaths worldwide. If you smoke, quitting is the best thing you can do for your health. Talk to your healthcare provider about the resources and support available to help you quit.
  7. Limit Alcohol Consumption: Excessive alcohol consumption can increase the risk of numerous health problems, including liver disease and certain types of cancer. If you choose to drink, do so in moderation – up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men.
  8. Manage Stress: Chronic stress can negatively impact both your physical and mental health. Find healthy ways to cope with stress, such as exercising, practicing mindfulness or seeking support from friends, family or a mental health professional.

Preventative care is an essential component of maintaining good health and well-being. By taking simple steps to prioritizing your health and working closely with your healthcare provider, you can significantly reduce your risk of chronic diseases and enjoy a healthier life. At HHM Health, we are committed to supporting you on your journey to optimal health. To learn more about our preventative care services or to schedule an appointment, please visit our website.

HHM Health Launches HHM Health Pharmacy, a 340B Drug Pricing Program

The federal 340B Drug Pricing Program has been helping covered entities expand and enhance their services for underserved populations since 1992. The idea was to require manufacturers to give significant discounts on outpatient drugs, clinic-administered drugs, over-the-counter drugs with prescriptions, biologics and insulin. The intent of the program was to provide affordable medicine to eligible patients and provide more comprehensive services. 

The 340B Drug Pricing Program is one part of a safety net designed to support healthier communities. When the program began, eligibility was tightly focused on traditional safety-net hospitals, outpatient clinics, and community health centers. The program was successful and soon expanded to more points of care. The program is featured in communities across the country, and from rural hospitals to urban health systems, each community has its own mix of economic and demographic conditions to navigate. Each participating organization has flexibility with how they choose to channel its savings, so not every version of the program is the same. Yet, they all have the same purpose: to provide affordable healthcare for those in need. 

HHM Health is proud to be participating in the 340B Drug Pricing Program. We believe this program is tremendous and provides a much-needed boost to supplying affordable healthcare. Now, this program strongly focuses on the pharmaceutical aspect of healthcare. Still, in the future, we hope another program comes forward, or this one expands, to make more aspects of healthcare inclusive and affordable for everyone across the United States. For now, HHM Health aims to focus on providing affordable healthcare to the Dallas community.

At HHM Health, we strive to further the great community of Dallas through our work in the medical field. At our medical centers, HHM’s healthcare professionals provide quality healthcare to all their neighbors with love, compassion, and respect. We are fully equipped to handle any situation related to the health of an individual and provide affordable healthcare to all patients in need. 

Around Dallas, communities have suffered from a healthcare crisis for several years, and our goal at HHM Health is not simply to help it but instead to solve it. With 39% of the Dallas population uninsured, it is important for people to receive the health care they need without drowning in medical bills. HHM Health guarantees safe, affordable healthcare for all regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. 

We offer services that include family practice, women’s health, pediatrics, dental, vision, behavioral health, imaging and pharmacy. If you need it, we provide it! HHM Health values compassion, advocacy, respect, excellence, and servant’s hearts, demonstrating how much we truly care. HHM Health is constantly training our healthcare professionals to ensure they use the newest medical practices. As the Dallas community continues to grow, we hope to open more centers in Dallas to continue to serve the community and those living in it!

Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women’s Health

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment used to alleviate symptoms related to menopause and other hormonal imbalances in women. Menopause is a natural process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries stop producing eggs, and her body produces less estrogen and progesterone. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood changes. HRT is a way to replace these hormones and alleviate these symptoms.

HRT can be administered in a variety of forms, such as pills, skin patches, gels, and vaginal creams. The most common form is a pill that contains both estrogen and progesterone. However, some women may only need estrogen therapy if they have had a hysterectomy and no longer have a uterus. In such cases, the progesterone is not needed.

HRT can be effective in reducing the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats. It can also help to improve mood and cognitive function, as well as bone density, which can help to prevent osteoporosis. Additionally, HRT can improve vaginal health by reducing dryness and discomfort during sexual activity.

It’s  important to note that HRT does have some risks. Studies have shown that HRT can increase the risk of certain types of cancer, such as breast and ovarian cancer. It can also increase the risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. Therefore, it’s essential to have a conversation with your healthcare provider about the potential risks and benefits of HRT before starting treatment.

It’s also important to remember that HRT is not for everyone. Women who have a history of blood clots, stroke, or certain types of cancer, should not take HRT. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid HRT. It’s essential to discuss your medical history and any other medications you are taking with your healthcare provider before starting HRT.

At HHM Health, we understand the importance of maintaining optimal hormonal balance in women’s health. Our team of experts is here to help you navigate the complex world of hormone replacement therapy. We work closely with you to understand your unique needs and recommend the best treatment options for you. Whether you’re dealing with symptoms of menopause or other hormonal imbalances, we’re here to help you find relief and improve your quality of life.

In conclusion, hormone replacement therapy can be an effective treatment for symptoms related to menopause and other hormonal imbalances in women. However, it’s important to have a conversation with your healthcare provider about the potential risks and benefits before starting treatment. It’s also important to remember that HRT is not for everyone and that there may be other options available. At HHM Health, we are dedicated to providing personalized and comprehensive care for women’s health. Our team of experts is here to help you navigate the complex world of hormone replacement therapy and find the best treatment options for you. We work closely with you to understand your unique needs and help you find relief and improve your quality of life.

HHM Health Now in Oak Cliff

Healthcare is one of the most important aspects of our lives, and access to quality healthcare is a fundamental right for all. Unfortunately, not everyone has equal access to healthcare, and communities of color often bear the burden of healthcare disparities. The Oak Cliff community in Dallas, Texas is one such community that has historically faced these challenges. However, a new clinic has recently opened in Oak Cliff with the goal of addressing these disparities head-on.

HHM Health, a non-profit organization, has opened a new clinic in Oak Cliff, Dallas with the goal of providing comprehensive, high-quality healthcare to the community. The clinic offers a wide range of services, including primary care, behavioral health, and chronic disease management. The clinic also offers a sliding fee scale, which means that patients will be charged based on their income, making it more affordable for low-income families.

The clinic also has a strong focus on addressing health disparities in the community. The clinic staff is culturally and linguistically diverse, and they are trained to understand and address the unique healthcare needs of the Oak Cliff community. The clinic also has a strong emphasis on preventative care, which is critical in addressing chronic diseases that disproportionately affect communities of color.

One of the most significant challenges faced by the Oak Cliff community is the lack of access to healthcare. Many residents in the area cannot afford to see a doctor, and as a result, they often put off seeking medical attention until it is too late. This new clinic is working to change that by providing affordable, accessible healthcare to the community. With the sliding fee scale and the availability of a wide range of services, the clinic is making healthcare more affordable and accessible to everyone, regardless of their income.

The clinic also has a strong focus on preventative care, which is essential in addressing chronic diseases that disproportionately affect communities of color. The clinic staff is trained to provide education and resources to help patients make healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and managing stress. These preventative measures can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

The clinic also provides behavioral health services, which is another area where the Oak Cliff community faces disparities. The clinic offers counseling and therapy services, as well as medication management, to help patients manage mental health conditions. The clinic staff is trained to understand and address the unique mental health needs of the community, which is essential in addressing the high rates of depression and anxiety in the area.

In conclusion, the opening of HHM Health clinic in Oak Cliff is a significant step forward in addressing the healthcare disparities that have long affected the community. With its focus on providing comprehensive, high-quality healthcare, the clinic is making healthcare more affordable and accessible to everyone, regardless of their income. Additionally, the clinic’s emphasis on preventative care and behavioral health services is critical in addressing the chronic diseases and mental health conditions that disproportionately affect the Oak Cliff community. We hope that the clinic will continue to make a positive impact on the lives of the residents in Oak Cliff, Dallas.

Get Your Kids Vaccinated During Flu Season

Flu season is upon us, and it’s more important than ever to ensure our children are protected. Vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu, and it’s essential to get your kids vaccinated during flu season. Not only does vaccination protect your child from getting sick, but it also helps to reduce the spread of the flu to others.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that can cause severe illness and even death, especially in young children and older adults. Symptoms of the flu include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and fatigue. The flu can also lead to complications such as pneumonia, ear infections, and even hospitalization. Children under the age of five are at a higher risk of complications from the flu, making it even more important to get them vaccinated.

The flu vaccine is safe and effective. It’s been thoroughly tested and used for decades to protect against the flu. The vaccine is formulated each year based on the strains of the flu that are most likely to circulate during the upcoming flu season. It’s important to get vaccinated every year as the flu strains can change from year to year.

Vaccination is especially important for children who are at a higher risk of complications from the flu. This includes children with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease. It’s also important for children who are immunocompromised, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or those who have HIV.

Getting your child vaccinated is easy and convenient. Many pediatricians and family doctors offer the flu vaccine, and it’s also available at most pharmacies. It’s a quick and painless shot that can be given during a regular check-up. The flu vaccine is also available in a nasal spray form for children who are afraid of needles.

It’s also essential to teach your children the importance of getting vaccinated and good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of the flu. Encourage them to wash their hands frequently, cover their mouths and noses when they cough or sneeze, and stay home if they are sick. By taking these steps, you can help protect your children and others from the flu this season.

In conclusion, vaccination is the best way to protect your child from getting sick during flu season. It’s essential to get your child vaccinated as soon as possible to ensure maximum protection against the flu. At HHM Health, we understand the importance of protecting our community from the flu, and we make it easy for you to get your child vaccinated. Our clinic offers the flu vaccine for children and adults, and our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care. If you have any questions or concerns about the flu vaccine, please don’t hesitate to contact us. At HHM Health, we are committed to helping you and your family stay healthy during flu season and throughout the year. Let’s work together to protect our community from the flu and ensure that everyone has access to quality healthcare.

How to Manage High Blood Pressure and Diabetes

High blood pressure is twice as likely to affect a person with diabetes than a person without diabetes. In fact, as many as 2 in 3 people who suffer from diabetes report having high blood pressure or are advised to take high blood pressure medications. Not only do these conditions work together, but they also cause a significant increase in one’s risk of heart disease, stroke, or cardiovascular disease. This is why it is so important to us at HHM Health to help our patients take preventative measures to treat or prevent high blood pressure. Here are HHM’s top tips for managing and preventing high blood pressure and diabetes: 

  1. Keep a Healthy Weight

People who have been diagnosed with or fall into the categories of being overweight or obese are at higher risk for health issues, including diabetes and high blood pressure. By trying to maintain a healthy weight, you can lower your risk for health problems and make it less likely that you will get heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, losing as little as 5 to 10 pounds can help lower high blood pressure, and patients also tend to be happier after losing that weight. 

  1. Reduce Salt Intake

Salt can cause your body to hold on to extra fluid, causing bloating and high blood pressure. The American Heart Association recommends that adults consume less than 1,500 mg of sodium per day to help lower blood pressure and, thus, lower their risk of heart disease. By checking the sodium content on nutrition labels, you can easily track your salt intake when you cook at home and know what goes into your food. The tricky part of tracking sodium intake is that 70% of the sodium we eat comes from packaged and restaurant-prepared foods, so by eating fresh food and preparing meals at home, you can significantly lower your daily sodium intake. 

  1. Keep Active

Exercising regularly is an easy way to lower blood pressure, improve diabetes, and lose weight. Exercise also improves one’s overall well-being and health, both mentally and physically. The British Journal of Sports Medicine says that when people want to lower their blood pressure, exercise works just as well as medicine. The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise weekly, which is only 20 to 30 minutes a day of walking, biking, or swimming. 

  1. Reduce Alcohol Intake

The consumption of alcohol can cause a spike in your blood pressure, especially if you drink a lot of it over time. Reducing alcohol intake significantly lowers blood pressure in those who drink regularly. The American Heart Association recommends men have no more than two drinks per day, and women have no more than one drink per day. A drink is defined as 12 oz of beer, 4 oz of wine, 1.5 oz of spirits over 80-proof, or 1 oz of 100-proof spirits. 

  1. Stop Smoking and Avoid Secondhand Smoke

Nicotine and tobacco products are two of the main causes of high blood pressure, and the continued use of these products can lead to several health problems. Therefore, cutting down on or quitting smoking and inhaling less secondhand smoke is one of the best ways to keep your blood pressure down and your heart healthy. There are plenty of resources to help you quit, and for more information on those resources, contact HHM Health or your primary healthcare provider today!

HHM Health is a non-profit community health center that provides caring, high-quality medical care that is easy to get to. We provide services to the Dallas, Texas, area, which also happens to be the country’s most uninsured county. We welcome you to contact our center if you live in the Dallas neighborhood and need our services.

Behavioral Health With The Holidays

According to a recent survey by the American Psychological Association, 38 percent of Americans experience heightened stress during the holiday season, leading to physical illness, depression, anxiety, and even substance abuse. Those already suffering from mental illness noted that their conditions worsened around the holidays. This heightened sense of stress is due to a variety of factors, including a lack of time, financial pressure, and family gatherings. However, there are ways in which we can prepare ourselves and deflect some of the stress we experience during the holiday season. Our experts at HHM Health have identified common issues that arise during this season and ways to address them. 

Lacking the “Holiday Spirit” 

During the holidays, it can be embarrassing to be around people who are happy but don’t share your happiness. If you feel like you have to match their happiness, you may feel left out. During this time, it is important to recognize that you are not required to feel happy or joyful. Hundreds of thousands of people suffer through these same feelings around the holidays. If you can, hang out with people who feel the same way, and try to deal with your feelings instead of numbing them out with alcohol or other drugs. 

There is Little to No Sunlight

Less exposure to natural light actually has a negative impact on people, causing them to feel more depressed and anxious during the winter. To reduce these feelings, try to get as much sunlight as possible throughout the day. You can feel happier and more energized by working near a window, eating lunch outside, or putting in warm, bright lights in your home. Light winter candles and plug in twinkling lights for a reason. The winter is also a perfect time to work on quieter projects and activities due to the slower pace of the season, which includes knitting, writing, baking, etc. These projects help clear one’s head, allowing you to become more relaxed. 

You’re Feeling Isolated 

While we tend to be surrounded by our loved ones during the holiday season, the feeling of isolation may set in if you are away from loved ones, and you may find it hard to reach out. During this time, it is important to remind yourself of the people, places, and things that make you feel happy. Scheduling a call or video chat with friends and family on a regular basis will not only help reduce this feeling but also reduce the difficulty of reaching out in a time of need. Living in the technological age, there are so many ways to reach out to your loved ones. Holiday cards, emails, and social media are also excellent ways to stay in touch regardless of distance. 

The holidays are known as a time of giving. However, please do not forget to care for yourself during this time as well. Keeping a balanced diet, following a moderate exercise routine, and getting plenty of sleep are great ways to take care of yourself. Do not get carried away with distractions and stressors, as you’ll lose track of yourself and your basic needs.
We value your whole health. HHM Health provides accessible, affordable, and compassionate care.  If you continue to struggle with your mental health, we strongly advise seeing one of HHM Health’s mental health professionals or one of our primary care physicians, as we can work with you to figure out what is wrong and what we can do to help you.

Things to Look for When Choosing Your Health Insurance

Choosing a health insurance plan may seem overwhelming, but HHM Health is here to help. Insurance companies use confusing terms regarding healthcare and selecting a plan forces you to think hard about your health and finances. Whether you are aging out of your parent’s plan, in a plan that no longer works for you or you’re uninsured and want to see available options, we have plenty of advice and tips to ensure you can find the right healthcare plan. 

  1. Know Where to Go

It’s not always obvious where to look for health insurance, as the United States has hundreds of programs available.

If you are 65 or older, you are eligible for Medicare. Medicare is a federally run program that involves the government paying for most of your health care. If you have a disability, you might also be eligible to receive Medicare. For those under 65, the vast majority will have health insurance options through their employer, who will typically cover between 50% and 90% of premium costs. 

Medicaid is another health insurance option. Medicaid is a health insurance program that mostly helps people with low incomes. It covers almost one in four Americans. This program is funded by federal and state governments but is run by each state, so where you live determines your eligibility. If you don’t know how to enroll in Medicaid and want to be seen at one of our clinics, HHM Health has an enrollment team that can help you. 

For anyone else, is your one-stop shop for health insurance, which the Affordable Care Act created. This is where you can shop for health insurance if any of the categories mentioned above do not apply to you. In this marketplace, you can apply for financial help depending on your income and choose a plan. 

  1. Think About Your Health

If you are overwhelmed by the options available to you, especially in the Affordable Care Act marketplace, it’s best to think about your health and what applies to you. Basic questions can help narrow this search down. For instance, do you have an ongoing health issue you will need care for?  

If you are healthy, a variety of plans might work for you. However, if your spouse or child has ongoing health needs, having more information can help narrow your choices to the health insurance that best suits your needs. You may even be able to enter medications and doctor’s names to filter out plans that do not cover them. 

There are two major types of plans to consider: HMOs and PPOs. Health Maintenance Organizations have a strict network of providers, so if you choose to see a provider outside of the network, all costs are on you. Preferred Organizations give you a more comprehensive range of providers. Even though it costs a bit more, it still pays for some of the costs. 

  1. Beware of Too-Good-To-Be-True Plans Online

The internet has proven to be a scary place as more and more scams have arisen online. It is important not to put your contact information in health insurance interest forms on random websites or click on online ads for insurance. 

Plans that appear on Google seem appealing due to their low cost, but tend to be short-term plans that do not cover basic prescriptions or annual check-ups. Experts advise going straight to because, no matter where you live or your financial status, you can go through the portal and find healthcare options that will work for you. Any plan found through will cover essential benefits, including preventative care and hospital coverage. 

HHM Health is a non-profit community health facility that offers compassionate, excellent healthcare that is easily accessible. We provide services to the Dallas, Texas area, which also happens to be the country’s most uninsured county. We welcome you to contact our center if you live in the Dallas neighborhood and need our services.
