Need a doctor? Find free and low-cost clinics
If you’re having trouble paying for doctor visits, consider a sliding-fee clinic, which lets you pay what you can afford. These clinics often offer a full range of medical and dental services; to find one in your area, go to ask.hrsa.gov/pc. Or, for common ailments, try a retail clinic such as those found in CVS. One study showed that these clinics cost 25 percent less than a physician’s office.
