Free Clinics in Minnesota


Each state has a population of low-income residents who struggle with the cost of everyday living. Our nation has experienced a major shift in employment, wages, insurance, and health care costs over the past few years. These changes and inflation have left many in need of help. Minnesota is no exception, and there are various nonprofit organizations who strive to provide assistance to the medically and financially needy. Luckily, Minnesota has one of the most broad income ranges for Medicaid eligibility, providing more low-income residents to coverage.

However, even those on state-funded benefits need access to care. Medicaid members, uninsured individuals, or even those who have limited benefits, may find free clinics to be a great help. Offering professional health care services in a safe, free or low-cost environment, community health centers are an affordable way to receive care. Services offered at most clinics are those you would receive from a primary care doctor, including preventative testing, routine physicals, and care for minor illnesses and injuries. For follow-up, a clinic will refer you to a specialist.

Below are a number of free health centers located throughout Minnesota. You may also contact the Minnesota Association of Community Health Centers at 612.253.4715.

Another cost-effective outlet for medical services is Planned Parenthood, which has 18 locations throughout the state. Residents can receive a variety of services through these centers, who accept patients openly and charge according to what you can afford. Locate a center near you by visiting the Planned Parenthood site.
