Loss of Health Coverage

If you lost health coverage due to a job loss, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period. Foundation Communities is still open for phone appointments: call 512-381-4520, email enroll@foundcom.org, or click here to schedule.

Telehealth Services

If you need to see a doctor for a minor illness or injury, consider using telehealth services from the comfort of your home. Most telehealth services allow you to see a doctor by video, phone or text, so you can minimize your risk of both spreading germs and exposing yourself to new germs.

All ACA insurance plans offer telehealth services and many other plans do as well. Contact your insurance company for more information.

*If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, contact your doctor ASAP to be screened by phone. If you don't have an established primary doctor, see the Hotlines section below for alternative screening options. Do not visit the hospital unless your symptoms are life-threatening.
