To support the general health needs of residents, the Mayor’s Health Line, a free, confidential, and multilingual information and referral service, offers advice about a variety of healthcare-related issues, including answering questions about health insurance eligibility, getting health insurance coverage, finding primary care providers, connecting to social services, locating free clinics, and more.
