Gwinnett Health Finder
Not every employer can offer full health insurance benefits so we’ve created a great resource to connect Gwinnett’s un/underinsured residents to quality affordable healthcare options. Connect your employees to trusted adult and pediatric clinics, mental health services, dental care, and specialists via Gwinnett Health Finder.
Data shows that 78%+ of employees live paycheck to paycheck, so if there has been any disruption in your business and employee compensation was adjusted, it is very likely many of your employees are struggling to provide for their family. Please share GwinnettCares.org/needhelp with them and encourage them to seek the support they need to get back on solid footing.
