Free clinics and health centers in Worcester County
The low income and uninsured can get help from Worcester clinics. A number of health centers and community clinics offer patients access to a wide variety of primary dental, medical care and specialty care services. The clinics in Worcester County Massachusetts can provide assistance for low income people of all ages and backgrounds, from birth to adulthood.
Call or stop by community clinics for information or applications for free/low cost health care. Insurance can be accepted too, if a patient has it. What will usually occur is the patient will need to apply for free charity care, and if their income is low enough and they have no insurance, they may qualify. Clinics in Worcester may be able to offer general physician examinations, some basic pharmaceutical supplies, dental care, pediatric evaluation, and referrals (if needed) to specialists.
