I Still Dont Know How To Help My Patient

If you do not have time to find out what program is right for your patient, please just give your patient the number for a patient navigator. This patient navigator will help your patient figure out the best course of action for obtaining health insurance. Here are some quick phone numbers you can provide:

  • If you are seeing a patient on a Mon-Fri (from 8am-5pm) – call Gateway to Care at 713-783-4616
  • If you have a Spanish-speaking patient, try Ventanilla de Salud (located at the Mexican Consulate – but this is NOT just for patients who are Mexican!): 713-778-6105
  • And if you are seeing a patient in the middle of the night or weekend – have them call the national ACA hotline at 1-800-318-2596
