Health Centers

Health Care is available to uninsured and low-income people through a variety of programs. No one should be forced to do without health care. Below is a list of health centers in Philadelphia, with instructions on how to see a doctor.

 

How to See a Doctor

It is a difficult task for many uninsured people to find a doctor to provide needed medical services. Without health insurance this proves to be a difficult task. Throughout Philadelphia and the suburbs there are city, federal and community health centers that provide free or low-cost health care to uninsured individuals. They may charge a small fee for services, depending on your income and family, but services are free for those who cannot afford to pay. These health centers will provide quality care to people whether or not they have insurance.


Each of the health centers offers a variety of services and not all of the health centers offer the same services. Services available at the health centers include internal medicine, pediatrics, family practice, lab tests, X-rays, immunizations, dental care for children, minimal dental care for adults, prenatal care as part of the Maternal and Infant Care Program, family planning services and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Food Program. The Centers will also fill prescriptions written by their doctors. Some health centers have evening hours and some help arrange transportation for you. A number of the clinics have staff that speak Spanish and others have staff that speak some Asian languages and Russian.


Be sure to call ahead to find which health center has the services you need.
