Virginia Free Clinics

Free Clinics provide low-income, uninsured Virginians with free or low cost health services.

Virginia’s free clinics depend on volunteers, including doctors, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, dental hygienists, mental health professionals and others.  They also rely on community support, and benefit from grants from foundations like the Virginia Health Care Foundation to help them expand services and care for more patients.

How can a Free Clinic help?

All of Virginia’s free clinics provide basic health care services and help patients get free or low cost prescription medications.  Most also provide some dental services, and many also provide mental health care.

Is there a Free Clinic near me?

Find a Virginia free clinic by clicking on the Virginia Association of Free Clinics’ map. (*Note, the list includes only those free clinics that are members of the Virginia Association of Free Clinics.)  Some free clinics have more than one location within a community, each with its own hours and days of operation.

When are Free Clinics open?

Every free clinic sets its own hours and days of operation. Some are open daily, while others may be open just one night each week.  Contact the free clinic nearest you to find out its schedule.

How do I know if I am eligible to receive care at a Free Clinic?

Each clinic sets its own income eligibility requirements.  Depending on which clinic is in your area, the income limit ranges between 100% or 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).

Contact your local free clinic to find out its income eligibility requirements.  You’ll also need to find out whether the clinic is accepting new patients.  Some free clinics have been so overwhelmed with the increase in new patients that they have had to establish waiting lists or lotteries to determine who can receive care.

How can I learn more?
