free healthcare
    #90436 - 07/22/08 12:01 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

does this exist in the US?

ive heard people talking about free healthcare clinics and whatnot. are there really places like that? if so what kinds of things do they usually treat? is it just like small things, or could it be bigger issues as well?

sorry i got a problem and no insurance, so some info would be welcomed!

i searched google for free health clinics/free healthcare + my city/state and didnt find anything

I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

You can go to a free clinic, but that's just for small things like cuts and scrapes.

If you need to stay at a hospital for a few days (recovering from a stab wound, etc.),
then no - you'll need insurance or a big-ass bank account.

Any emergency room must see you and treat you, regardless of your ability to pay. That's the law.

Once they see you, ask them about free followup care, clinics, etc. They will be in the best position to tell you what resources are available in your area.

Yea just go to your local ER or urgent care clinic, they will treat you and just send you a fat bill.

Oh, they'll send you a bill, sure. But you don't have to pay it. And if you are really poor enough to need free healthcare instead of paying your own way- they might just write it off.

You shouldn`t wait too long if you have a serious health problem...may not be a good idea.

Well, you can avoid all hassles by sending them a dollar a month or some crap. But as for paying, what are they going to do to you if you don't pay? Put your appendix back in?

i dont know, fuck my credit up. not let me get any type of loan in the future. take it out of my weekly checks at work.

something along those lines?

i mean, i know they cant just un-fix me. but it doesnt mean i still cant get fucked.

why wouldnt everyone just do that then?

why does everyone think a little piece of paper is the end all be all of their existence. so you owe a company money, who cares? you have rights, they can't do anything about it but send it to a collection agency who will call you. sometimes the hospital/clinic will work out a payment plan with you also.

if your sick, get help, don't wait.

Federally-funded health centers care for you, even if you have no health insurance. You pay what you can afford, based on your income. Health centers provide
checkups when you're well
treatment when you're sick
complete care when you're pregnant
immunizations and checkups for your children
dental care and prescription drugs for your family
mental health and substance abuse care if you need it


thats what the HRSA has to say. and theres 4 clincs in my area!

those "free" community healthcare centers suck balls. at least the ones around here do. they operate at over 100% capacity daily, and it's a bitch to even get an appointment with a doctor.

probably better off going to ER

1000's of $$ in medical bills hardly seems like something that is just 'passed to a collections agency'. that seems like it would be a little more serious

Yea if you are under or at the poverty line, you get free health care in the States.
basically your health care system is worst for middle class average joes, who are not rich enough for private, and too rich for free.
