Free and low-cost care in San Francisco

As part of our ongoing effort to help you find free and low-cost healthcare resources when you need them most, we have been researching clinics and other thrifty resources throughout the country.

Today, we’ll talk about low-cost resources in San Francisco, CA. The San Francisco Department of Health has a comprehensive list of primary care centers, health clinics, dental clinics, and more. If you’re looking for free care, you might want to check out the Haight Ashbury Free Clinics, which feature two medical clinics and a behavioral health center, as well as psychiatric services for prison inmates.

If you know of any other free or low-cost resources available in the Bay Area, leave a comment and let us know!

      Hi Maung, I made some phone calls and it seems like Northeast Medical Services may be the best option. They have a number of locations in San Francisco (Chinatown/North Beach, Portola, Visitacion Valley, Sunset). Prices will be the same, so you can go to whichever location is the most convenient for you.

      A membership IS required to obtain service. Membership is free. Call (415) 391-9686 and dial extension 8150. The representative will ask you a few questions. The amount they charge you is based on your income level.

      Here is the link to their website: NORTHEAST MEDICAL SERVICES
