How to Find Low-Cost Health Care in Your Community

If you can’t afford any health plan and don’t qualify for coverage through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), you can get low-cost health care at a nearby community health center.

How much you pay depends on your income (aka: “sliding scale” healthcare).

General Services Nationwide: https://www.hrsa.gov/get-health-care/affordable/hill-burton/facilities.html

Note: PFCA, CFCA, UACA and 515 facilities are certified under a compliance alternative. Their programs may be called either free care, charity care, discounted services, etc. and may have different eligibility and financial criteria.
