No Job? No Insurance? No Problem.

Nonprofit site helps the unemployed find free & low-cost health care options



    Celebrating Life After Breast Cancer
    More Connecticut newspaper jobs are disappearing, this time, through buyouts.

    If you're now one of the estimated 5.3 million people in the United States without a job right now, take heart -- there's a service that can take health insurance off your list of worries.

    We bring you the Coverage for All website, courtesy of the Foundation for Health Coverage Education.  It's a nonprofit that has tons of information and tools.  You can also find the number for a hotline that can link you to dozens of free or low-cost health care options that will give you coverage until you get a new gig.

    One of the simplest tools is this super-quick, five-question survey, which will then give you a list of the public and private health benifits you may qualify for.
