Community Health Centers
A network of community health centers across the country provides preventive and primary care to millions of Americans. They provide care for free or on a sliding scale based on your income.
How can I get affordable care in my community?
Community Health Centers are hospitals, health centers, or clinics that provide free or low-cost health care. These places provide prenatal care, baby shots, prescription drugs, general primary care, and specialized care for more serious conditions including mental health, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS.
Anyone may use a community health care center, whether you have health insurance or not. How much you pay will depend on your income.
