    1. Hi Jessica,

      So sorry to hear what you are going through. Some areas in Texas do have free clinics, hospital charity care, or other services listed on this page.

      Texas did not expand medicaid and also cut its medicaid program for the aged, blind or disabled, making it more difficult for people to access healthcare there 😦

      Please do try some of the other things on this page. I hope something else here may work for you.
