Hey! You! American person with no health insurance or inadequate health insurance!
Chances are you live near a FQHC - a Federally Qualified Health Center. These are clinics and health centers that get extra money for treating Medicaid patients for the purpose of using those extra dollars to provide care to the un-and-under-insured in their communities. The services are on a sliding fee scale dependent on your income. You might pay as little as $5 per visit. FQHCs offer complete, comprehensive care from checkups and preventative medicine to sick visits and mental health and substance abuse services. Just click the link to search for a center near you.
They are real doctor’s offices staffed by real doctors (and PA-Cs, midwives, NP’s, etc). Many have pharmacies with discounted drugs available. Many have emergency dental care.
It would be awesome if you guys could reblog this. I know there are a lot of people out there who don’t even know these kind of health centers exist, and you could help a follower out!
