    I don't know. You may need to speak someone locally. Health plans/insurance are usually there for insurance purposes when needed. The problem is that you are talking about an indigent person seeking free/subsidized living and trying to find a potential agency that might care for people in such a situation. This is one reason why our country is asking questions about taking care of our people who cannot care for themselves.
