Closing the gap in Health Care coverage
Who we help
Many people have access to our free resources. Read below for details.
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.
Many of our patients are facing life threatening situations when they enter Clinic doors.
Often times, patients are forced to make the choice between food and shelter or much needed medications. The Clinic not only addresses medical needs, but acts as a resource to direct patients to other community organizations that may offer additional assistance or services. The Clinic continues to experience steady growth and offers services beyond what we ever imagined possible.
We are extremely blessed and we are very grateful for all your support.
The Community Free Clinic is a primary healthcare provider seeking to remove obstacles which prevent people from maintaining their health and well-being.
- The Clinic offers continuity of care, laboratory screenings and needed medications.
- The Clinic partners with many community organizations to coordinate services.
- When needed, patients are referred to specialists for more extensive evaluation and treatment based on availability.
This has become a reality through the continued support of our local residents and businesses.
That this organization is nurtured in our growth and supported so strongly is a tribute to the values held by our community. Consideration and responsible care for the well being of our community is reflected in the continued success of the clinic.
This is the Community’s Free Clinic. The staff and volunteers responsible for the day-to-day operations, including those who provide services, are truly caretakers of this amazing resource.
