Help with Medical Care in the Waco Area

Personal message from Bob Richardson:

Often it is very difficult to contact indigent healthcare services. You might have to leave a message or actually go to their offices early in the morning only to be told that you must come back again. Securing indigent services is not easy, and SSA will require that you be persistent in trying to obtain medical care. We often hear judges say that if a person is not persistent in obtaining medical care and medications that they must be ok and able to work.

Therefore, you must not give up! Medical care is extremely important and necessary for you personally, as well as your Social Security Disability case. So keep trying and hopefully you will be successful in getting the help you need.

For any other social service related information, such as current prescription assistance, call Texas 211 by simply dialing 211.
