We have discovered an excellent resource for people who are uninsured in the New York City area. The New York City Free Clinic is composed of New York University’s School of Medicine and The Institute for Family Health. NYCFC operates on the belief that everyone, health or social status notwithstanding is entitled to quality healthcare. NYCFC offers free and low-cost healthcare services and medications, with the only prerequisite being that the patient is uninsured.
Located on the right-hand side of NYCFC’s website is a “Resources” tab. Here, you can schedule an appointment, learn about volunteering, and locate health resources. Through clicking the latter link, you can find clinics and health centers by borough (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Bronx), STD Clinics, and information about public insurance.
