"Old age is not for sissies."—Bette Davis

Growing older can be one of the biggest challenges you'll ever face. We say: challenge accepted. But let's make it a little easier, with a booklet to prepare you for medical appointments, and an online resource for finding the right doctor.

Find Your Doctor

 

The Find Your Doctor Database, managed in partnership with the Bexar County Medical Society, helps patients find a Bexar county physician accepting new patients. 

The site also offers links to:

  • CHIP: Children in Texas without health insurance may be able to get low cost or free health coverage from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or Children’s Medicaid. Both programs cover office visits, prescription drugs, dental care, eye exams, glasses, and much more. 
  • Children's Medicaid: Families with children who get Children’s Medicaid pay nothing and children with CHIP pay no more than $50 a year for health care coverage. Some families with CHIP also may need to pay co-pays for some services
  • Your Texas Benefits: State benefit programs that help people with little or no money who are in need of services such as Health care: Medicaid and CHIP, SNAP food benefits, TANF cash help, and others
