Care Free Medical Clinic
Care Free Medical is a primary care medical office for thousands of patients with limited access to healthcare. We provide high quality, compassionate care for the most underserved adults and children in our community, including patients with Medicaid, Medicare, Ingham Health Plan, and patients without any insurance.
Our medical providers work hand-in-hand with each patient to create a wellness plan that fits the patient’s abilities and goals. In some situations, their wellness plan includes referrals to behavioral health specialists, optometry, dental and various medical specialties to provide comprehensive care. The goal for every patient is long-term wellness, which includes patient responsibility in his or her own care.
Payment & Insurances: Our clinic is funded through private donations, grants, and modest fee-for-service reimbursement for office visits. Care Free helps patients navigate the health care system to enroll in health benefits they may be eligible for from the federal government. Care Free also accepts patients without any insurance.
Prescription Assistance: Care Free’s Pharmacy Assist program has obtained more than $10 million in prescriptions for patients since Care Free’s creation in 2004. For patients without access to medically-necessary medications, Care Free may be able to obtain those medications for free for our patients.
Please Note: Care Free is NOT a walk-in urgent care clinic. You must call to make an appointment to be seen. Same day appointments, however, are available each day for patients with acute care needs. Care Free strives to be a good steward of public money and strives to keep patients with non-emergent health care needs out of Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care centers.
