It’s no longer a secret that millions of Americans have no health insurance coverage. Current figures suggest there are approximately 47 million uninsured people in this country. The Foundation for Health Coverage Education (FHCE) has completed studies that indicate up to 33 percent of the nation’s uninsured are currently eligible for government-sponsored health insurance programs but are not taking advantage of such programs.
The company has provided a telephone helpline for uninsured Americans to call in and receive advice about their health care options. The number is 800-234-1317. Counselors will provide information and direct callers to the appropriate government-sponsored health insurance programs.
