  Get Health Care At Low Or No Cost  

1.  Government programs include Medicare for the elderly and disabled and VA clinics for veterans.  The federal government also helps the states administer programs such as Medicaid for the poor, and the free Insure Kids Now (also called "SCHIP") program for many low-to-moderate income families.

2.   Most city and county governments offer low-cost physicals, immunizations and tests, oftentimes to people of all income levels.  Call some local health clinics and ask where the least expensive care is available. Online you can go to the government's Free and Low Cost Health Care page to find these health centers.

3.   Minute clinics are privately-operated clinics becoming available in more cities:  They can often cut costs up to 50% on immunizations and the treatment of minor conditions.
