Insurance for Uninsured Patients

No Health Insurance? There's Still HOPE.

You have many options for coverage – and HOPE can help you find one.

Healthy Outreach Patient Engagement (HOPE) is a partnership of Memorial Hospital Pembroke and South Broward Community Health Services that helps uninsured patients locate and enroll in medical insurance programs. HOPE also can link you with ongoing healthcare services within Memorial Healthcare System – so you can improve and maintain your health over time.

More Choices Mean More HOPE.

If you:

  • Work for a company that doesn't offer health insurance
  • Don't qualify for the coverage that's offered at your job
  • Aren't currently working

You and your family may be eligible for coverage from one of the following programs:

  • Florida's Healthcare Exchange (HIX) – Health plans for uninsured Americans offered by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (also known as Obamacare)
  • Florida KidCare Healthy Kids – Health coverage for children from birth through age 18
  • Financial Assistance or Charity Care – Provided at reduced prices or for free to low-income patients and families
  • Other State and Federally Funded Programs – If you qualify for them, we'll help you find them

HOPE Is Just Steps Away.

Are you currently visiting Memorial Hospital Pembroke's Emergency Department or Urgent Care Center? If so, a representative from HOPE can speak to you on-site. Or you can call one of HOPE's dedicated specialists at 855-729-5789.

To Get the HOPE Process Started, You Will Need the Following Documents:

  • Social Security Cards for all family members applying
  • Photo ID for all family members applying

South Broward Community Health Services can also link you with Memorial doctors and other providers who can care for you in the days and years to come. Having a “medical home” within Memorial Healthcare System can help ensure that you'll be able to maintain your health.
