Become a Patient
Free Clinic of Central Virginia provides expert care with superior treatment results to patients at all points in their care from diagnosis to treatment and ongoing wellness.
Your gift will help provide medical, dental and behavioral health services in our community. Our work is only possible with generous support from those who share our commitment to making health care available to all.
Become a Volunteer
Volunteers keep the “FREE” in The Free Clinic. Volunteer support keeps costs low, enabling us to provide quality medical, dental and behavioral health care for those who might otherwise go without care.
Free Clinic of Central Virginia has a Centralized Call Center (appointment phone line) to find the best day and time for your visit. Your phone call is very important to us.
The Free Clinic of Central Virginia, Inc. is dedicated to the belief that everyone should have access to healthcare services. Our mission is to provide primary medical, dental, pharmacy services and health education to those in Central Virginia who do not have the resources to obtain these basic healthcare needs.
We serve adults who reside in Central Virginia, are uninsured or underinsured, and who have income less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Individuals are considered underinsured if their health insurance does not cover the medically necessary service they are requesting, or if there is a demonstrated community-wide lack of access to care.
We request that uninsured patients make a nominal donation to cover an administrative fee of between $5 and $10 for some services. Patients with insurance will be charged the required co-payment for services. Patients are never denied medical, pharmacy or basic dental services if they are unable or unwilling to pay.
Our mission will be accomplished through a community based volunteer program which will include physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, laboratory technicians, dental hygienists, dental assistance, registered dieticians, mental health counselors and other non-healthcare professionals who provide various support services.
We extend our care through working relationships with other healthcare providers in our community who agree to make their services available to our patients at no charge. We partner with local hospital systems and other healthcare providers to create a continuum of services to improve the overall health of our community.
Care, Respect and Privacy
We endeavor to provide high-quality patient care in a compassionate way, respecting the dignity, privacy and worth of each person.
We provide education opportunities to assist our clients in improving their health. We provide practical experience for current and future healthcare professionals.
We make appropriate patient referrals when indicated. Our advocacy for the broad health needs of the poor is carried out through state and national associations of free clinics.
