Question about health insurance

I’ve swapped emails with a reader of this site for about a year now.  She is anorexic and has made tremendous strides in getting better.  She saw a doctor, got meds, and has been doing great.  Props to her for having the gumption to get help, it’s not easy.

However, she just sent me this email and I don’t have an answer.  Perhaps one of you will.

I need some advice, if you’re able to provide it. I recently turned 26, and am no longer on my ‘rents insurance…meaning I can no longer afford my meds?  What can I do?  I’ve noticed how much my anxiety about food (and overall) is getting and I’d really like to not stop progressing.

Thoughts?
