Welcome to Be Well!

We would love to see all of us get the healthcare that we need and deserve. We believe that healthcare is a human right!

Know that you’re not alone in your struggle to find health care and be well while un- or underinsured and low-income. BEING UNDERINSURED MEANS that you have coverage but cannot afford eg your copays or deductible. This makes you eligible for many of the services listed on this site.

We so hope that you find help here.

Our health care system as it exists now is seriously lacking. We hope that you’ll also consider getting involved in the many political efforts to improve health care access for all of us.

This site is meant to be a community resource. Your feedback and resource suggestions are very welcome! Please use the comments function. Our hope is that we can share with and support each other.

BE WELL, PITTSBURGH. XO

Immigrant and Refugee Health Care

From Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN):

Immigration Information: 

  • Generally, humanitarian immigrants like refugees and asylees, people who have had green cards for more than five years, and “lawfully present” children under 21 and pregnant adults can get Medical Assistance (MA). 
  • Emergency MA is available to individuals who have an immigration status that makes them ineligible for MA. These individuals must have a medical condition that has severe symptoms, requires medical attention quickly, and can lead to serious harm to a bodily function or part without treatment. (COVID-19 qualifies as an emergency medical condition in PA.)

Receiving MA is very unlikely to harm your immigration case, and MA follows strict privacy rules. The information you put on an MA application will be used only to determine MA eligibility and to make sure those who are eligible are able to receive and use their MA benefits.
