low-cost clinic
Free clinics (also known as free medical clinics & free health clinics) offer free or low-cost care to persons who have no health insurance and limited or no income. The range of services can include primary care for acute and non-emergency conditions, dental services, and mental health services. Many clinics are faith-based and provide a valuable safety net for those in need.

Free clinics are typically staffed by physicians, nurses and pharmacists who volunteer their time to help their community. Please thank these healthcare workers for donating their time and talent to help others. If you are able, consider making a donation or volunteer your time.
