PremiumHelp.org - United Way of the Greater Triangle

How Does the PremiumHelp.org Program Work?

For many of our friends and neighbors, healthcare is still unaffordable, even with the healthcare marketplace and federal tax assistance to help pay for premiums.  PremiumHelp.org (United Way of the Greater Triangle) is here to help those that meet certain income and residency requirements.  If you qualify, United Way of the Greater Triangle will pay the remainder of your health insurance premium each month, directly to the insurance carrier.
