The Health Fund
The Health Initiative’s Health Fund provides members of the LGBTQ community access to health screenings, annual physicals, dental treatments, prescription medication and more. HI works with local LGBTQ providers who offer free or discounted services and, when donations make it possible, can offer direct assistance to those who apply and are approved.
Announcement: June 2016
We are creating a new and improved system for access to the Health Fund!
The new system will be in place August 1, 2016. To ensure the system works properly, we will be closing the Health Fund application June 27, 2016 and the Health Fund from July 1-31, 2016.
While the Health Fund is closed, we will not be able to process new applications, generate referrals, pay for prescriptions or process reimbursements.
If you have need for Health Fund services such as appointment referrals, prescriptions, or reimbursements, or other Health Fund related services we must receive communication by June 24, 2016 to ensure processing will be completed by June 30.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we overhaul and improve the system.

History of the Health Fund
The Health Initiative Health Fund was launched in 2008 to help address the needs of under and uninsured lesbians in our community. The Fund was expanded in 2011 to include any uninsured or under-insured LGBTQ person. It is more important today than ever before. The Health Fund is truly “us helping each other.” If you need the assistance of the Health Fund, apply here. If you can give, please donate here. We average four referrals per week, and anticipate an increase as we expand our list of low-cost service providers and types of services available. Please remember, without your contribution* there is no Health Fund. *Contributions to the Health Fund are earmarked for healthcare expenses and are tax deductible.
