            about emergency department wait times, surgical outcomes, patient safety measures, health inspections, and staffing at your local facilities.

        C. If you don't have health insurance, you can find a public health clinic and pay what you can afford, based on your income. If you have a smart phone, you can use the Find A Health Center app to

            find a clinic near you. You can also explore insurance options available to you.

        D.  Find and compare health care facilities near you.
