There are multiple healthcare resources available at the community, state and federal levels.  Community resources are generally funded by those residing in that area.  Examples might include community health centers, public health departments, and public hospitals.  

States also provide healthcare resources in the forms of state departments of public health, state funded health care programs and administering federal Medicaid funds.  

At the federal level, resources include Medicaid and Medicare, funding others programs such as research, and providing and executing national policy for health care providers.
