The Health Plan has prepared these three resource guides to help you when your earned and self-pay coverage ends. If you need to locate private health insurance or pharmacy discount programs, these guides provide a good starting point to help you find an insurance program suitable for your circumstances. Please be aware that the Health Plan does not monitor the Web sites contained in these guides and, therefore, cannot be held responsible for any information which may be contained in or omitted from them. In addition, by listing these sites, the Health Plan is in no way endorsing, recommending or otherwise promoting the benefit programs of these companies.

  • Rx Resource Guide - This pharmacy resource guide offers links and phone numbers for a variety of governmental, non-profit and for-profit programs which can help you with drug costs by means of subsidies or discounts.
  • Nationwide Health Insurance Guide - This guide gives links, phone numbers and information on industry assistance programs, Federal/State health insurance programs and private sources for individual health insurance.
