Miscellaneous links possibly related and useful to low cost health and medical care, but as yet unorganized

Please consider this list to be 'raw'; that is, not all of the sites will necessarily be good and valuable links for the purposes of this site. Some of the links may end up being discarded later for reasons of broken URLs or others. I include them here because (A) this is a handy place for me to personally check them out when I get the chance and (B), where some of the links do prove valuable, having them here gives YOU the earliest possible access to them. I've included my personal first impressions on various sites too, where available.
