Many programs available for those on fixed, or no income

The federal government won the right to force individuals to purchase products so long as that mandate is enforced through a "tax," hence health care reform, or "Obamacare." Due to the efforts of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, the administration won a landmark 5-4 victory last year. Now - on the highly fallible healthcare.gov Web site, a little bit of information there declares - you don't need insurance to receive health care!

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Web site where people can buy Obamacare-mandated health insurance plans through government-run exchanges is now telling people that they actually don't need to buy a legally mandated health insurance plans - to get health care for free.

"Finding Health Care You Can Afford," on the Web site says "There may be local facilities that provide free or reduced-cost care, whether you're insured or not. What you pay depends on your income."

The "Learn More" tab leads users to a page that provides further details on how you can secure free and reduced-cost health care without buying on of the Obamacare-mandated plans.

"If you need health care, finding a provider you can afford can be a problem," the text states. "Fortunately, there are places you can go for a wide variety of health needs that will provide free or reduced-cost care.

"They include some hospitals, and health centers and clinics," the text states,which then lists free pr reduced-cost services.

"These places provide prenatal care, baby shots, prescription drugs, general primary care, and specialized care for more serious conditions including mental health, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS," the text says. "Anyone may use a community health center, whether you have health insurance or not. How much you pay will depend on your income."

Visitors are then directed to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - the federal agency in charge of Obamacare - and its Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Web site.

On this site, visitors can find out about free and reduced-cost medical services at a variety of medical facilities, including scores of hospitals, clinics and other health facilities that provide these services in exchange for federal funding they have received.

In 1946 Congress passed a law that gave hospitals, nursing homes and other health facilities grants and loans for construction and modernization, in order to provide a reasonable volume of services to persons unable to pay.

The program ended in 1997, but about 170 health care facilities nationwide are still obligated to provide free or reduced-cost care.
