The New York City Free Clinic

We’re in the process of updating some of our resource information, and came across The New York City Free Clinic. The NYCFC is, according to their website, “New York's only comprehensive free healthcare clinic.”

The only requirements for using the clinic are that you must be an uninsured adult over the age of 18 years. All services are free, with the exception of co-pays on the filling of medical prescriptions.

The NYCFC provides the following services-
• basic primary care
• patient education
• disease prevention & screening
• physical exams
• women's health, including gynecological care
• men's health
• vaccinations
• sexually transmitted infection testing (including HIV)
• laboratory testing
• radiology (including X-ray & MRI)
• specialty referrals to all medical specialties
• screening to help you qualify for Medicaid, Family Health Plus, or similar free public insurance programs

The NYCFC does not offer dental, pre-natal, or emergency care. Those interested in using their services should see here to schedule an appointment, or call 212-206-5200.
