Discounted care courtesy of the Federal Government

Did you know that besides Charity Care Clinics privately funded by caring community members and businesses, there are other clinics where the uninsured can find health care on a sliding scale or in some cases at no cost?

Federally Qualified Health Centers receive funding from the US Government to offer care on a sliding scale to those who qualify. They typically accept Medicare and Medicaid as well some other types of insurance. Most offer medical services for primary care needs. Some offer dental services and prescription assistance programs.

With over 3700 FQHCs across the nation, there is sure to be one in your vicinity. Search for a FQHC in your area today.
