Find a free clinic near you.
There are thousands of clinics near you or me, and they are listed below by state, county, and city. They are generally run local charity organizations, with some government funds sometimes being used to help pay for the operation of a community clinic. Each of the locations is focused on offering free, or sliding fee type medical care, to members of the community that live near them.
You can get various types of support from a clinic. The medical care offered at a center is often unique; often no two operate the some way. Some offer prescription medications or X-Rays. Others may provide various basic care, such as physicals or immunizations. Many sites are operated by volunteers, including doctors, nurses, surgeons, and even medical students. Examples of what a free clinic near you may provide includes the following, but call in advance for hours and exact services.
- Health risk screenings.
- Eye screenings or vision tests.
- Diabetes, heart check- and high blood pressure management.
- Child, adult and older adult care.
- Preventative health services.
- Pediatric care and general medicine.
- Breast cancer screening for males, adults and females.
- Disease screening and control.
- Substance abuse and mental health services.
- Local community clinics have referrals, including to patient assistance programs.
That is just a small example of what a community clinic near you may offer. The list of free or affordable medical care may include dozens or hundreds of services. But this will normally be for basic needs. Contact a center for more information.
Most of the free medical care from a clinic is offered to you if you are on Medicaid, private insurance (if the applicants income is low enough), Medicare, or a state benefit such as welfare. As noted, if the patient does have some income, then they may need to pay a portion of the bill due. But each and every clinic near me has their own payment policies, fees, and coverage types. For people who need help in finding free insurance, advocates at a clinic may assist with that service as well.
