Community Financial Resources

Short Overview

In addition to Duke Health's financial care counselors, there are many community resources that can help you with billing and payment-related issues. Here are just a few.

Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace ("exchange”) can help you find health insurance coverage issued by the government and private companies. You can shop, compare, and choose a plan that meets your family’s needs and find out if you qualify for federal tax credits and subsidies, Medicaid, or North Carolina Choice.
