Clinics provide a number of medical and health care services to Allegheny County and Pittsburgh families. Most of the care is offered either at lower rates, or some may be provided for free to the low income and uninsured. While programs, hours and services will vary, the health and dental centers will do what they can to help the less fortunate in Allegheny County.
Some of the services provided by community clinics include dentistry, health education, gynecology, dermatology, podiatry, optometry and referrals for specialty and additional services. A few of the health care centers also administrate a prescription voucher program, which is often available to the very low income or homeless individuals who have no medical assistance for covering prescription bills.
So while a clinic may not be able to meet all of your needs, they will do what they can to help as many people as possible. If a center can’t address your health care needs, they will refer people to other specialty care centers in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania region. Some of the additional specialty services that can be referred too include podiatry, AIDS/HIV testing/counseling and more general case management.
