Who We Help
There are only two qualifying stipulations to become a Community Free Clinic, Inc. patient *
1) You are currently a Resident of Washington County, MD
2) For whatever reason, you currently are Without Health Insurance
* Please note that Community Free Clinic, Inc. services are NOT based on patient income and most services are FREE to all qualifying patients.
Employed without Insurance
Many of our patients are currently hardworking individuals fully involved and committed to our community. However, their employment (many times with multiple part-time employers) does not come with a health insurance benefit. Many of our patients identify with this category.
With the tumultuous changes surrounding the Affordable Care Act and the Patient Freedom Act, many people continue to find themselves uninsured either temporarily or for many months at a time. No matter the reason, citizens of Washington County, Maryland who are medically uninsured will find excellent health care here.
Due to many unplanned circumstances, some people may become temporarily uninsured. They may be between jobs, waiting for coverage to activate, or dropped from a recent policy. During these times, we will provide you with health care.
Displaced or homeless
We recognize and care for those individuals that are fleeing abusive situations and seeking respite, those who have recently lost health care benefits due to the loss of employment or loss of coverage, the homeless, those recently released from prison or the detention center and divorced/separated men and women who have been dropped from spouse’s coverage.
