Do you have health insurance? Do you find yourself struggling to pay off medical bills? Where do you go if you’ve run out of money and desperately need a medication or medical procedure? Have no fear, Community Health Centers are here!

Community Health Centers are public, non-profit facilities that provide medical, dental, mental health and even chiropractic care as well as health education and specialty care to individuals regardless of age, sex, marital status, race, and income levels. Community Health Centers place a special emphasis on providing quality care to the underserved. Not only do they accept most insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare, but also offer a sliding scale payment plan for the uninsured, making care affordable for everyone. Whether you simply cannot afford health insurance or have reached the maximum payment you can pay with your current plan; Community Health Centers are here to help you.

So if you need medical care or medications and cannot afford the cost of health insurance or hospital bills, give a Community Health Center a visit. They have a variety of specialized departments, including nutrition, teen health, and woman’s health in addition to WIC programs and health education classes. Community Health Centers are known for providing prescription medications for individuals to stop them from purchasing such medications off the streets and for providing birth control contraceptives to women of all ages. The mission of Community Health Centers is to increase the health and well-being of patients without embarking monetary stress on their lives.
