Alternative Health Care Options: Low-Cost Clinics

Even without a major health insurance plan, primary and preventative care is often a priority to farmers and farming families. Federally Qualified Health Centers are health care clinics that will both accept insurance, and work with uninsured on a sliding scale to offer services.

In Georgia, all Federally Qualified Health Centers are housed under the Georgia Primary Care Association.

In Georgia, there are 211 listed centers, ranging from primary care, to behavior health to vision services.

The Georgia Charitable Care Network also offers a variety of affordable health options, although may be more limiting in eligibility and services. While these clinics aim to serve the uninsured in their local community, they are often run by volunteer providers and could have income eligibility requirements.

Find a center in the Georgia Charitable Care Network using this database, and call to learn about that center’s unique eligibility requirements, hours, services and more.

If you still have questions about low-cost clinics and health services in your area, reach out to your local public health district. A directory for district contacts and offices can be found online.
