Access to Health Care

Most people need medical care at some time in their lives. Access to affordable, quality health care is important to physical, social, and mental health. Health insurance helps individuals and families access needed primary care, specialists, and emergency care, but does not ensure access on its own-it is also necessary for providers to offer affordable care, be available to treat patients, and be in relatively close proximity to patients.
