I have insurance, can I still use Give an Hour?
Yes, you can. Many of those who use Give an Hour services have insurance but have chosen not to use it for a variety of reasons.
I am seeking a specific military assessment, can I still use Give an Hour?
Yes, you can. Not all Give an Hour providers are comfortable submitting gov’t assessment forms and they may not be able to do so on a pro-bono basis. Please make sure you clearly indicate this need when you submit your referral to reduce delays.
