In Pain, Out of Work and Can't Pay the Bills
A Resource Directory for People With CRPS

Finding A Free Clinic

If you need to see a doctor but cannot afford one, a free or low-cost clinic may be able to help you. Keep in mind that all free clinics have eligibility rules for patients: typically free clinics see only patients who have low income and who do not have insurance for the treatment needed. Depending upon their eligibility rules, not all clinics will be able to treat you. However, there may be some flexibility with the eligibility rules, so even if you think you do not qualify it may still be worth calling the clinic to ask about your situation. Sometimes the care at a free clinic is not completely free; there may be a small charge, depending upon any income you have. In addition, free clinics are not always able to provide care for complicated conditions like CRPS, but they still may be of at least some assistance.

You may be able to find a free clinic through your local phone books or on the Internet. You may need to try more than one website before you find a clinic to help you as not all the websites have complete lists.

You can also contact charities in your area (such as The Salvation Army or Catholic Charities) to see if they offer any health care services.

If caregivers at the free clinic need a copy of the RSDSA Clinical Treatment Guidelines (published in June 2006), you can download it here or contact the RSDSA office at 203.877.3790 to have a copy sent to the clinic.

Take Care Recovery Plan

The Take Care Recovery Plan is an offer of free, limited healthcare and diagnostic testing services at Take Care Clinics throughout the remainder of 2009 for qualified individuals. Click here for details.

If your state does not have its own website (see list below), these websites have information about free and low-cost clinics across the country:

The National Association of Free Clinics, a nonprofit organization, has a list of state and regional associations of free clinics on its website. Find your state or region's association, and contact that organization for a list of clinics near you.

RxAssist (an information center created by Volunteers in Health Care that helps people find out how to get medications) also has a list of state and regional associations of free clinics on its website. Find your state or region's association, and contact that organization for a list of clinics near you.
