The statistics are scary. With anywhere between 10 million and 75 million Americans uninsured, it’s astounding how many people do not have the ability to pay for medical care. It’s even scarier to think about the children who can’t afford to get basic medical care. Take a look at some of the ways that children can possibly receive basic medical care without breaking your budget:
You can find these in many stores including grocery stores, drug stores, Walmarts and Targets. Here’s what Parenting Squad says about store clinics:
These clinics are best for everyday health issues. They can quickly and easily diagnose things like ear infections and sinus infections and get your child the antibiotics they need to get better. Most of them have a list of conditions they will not see, so it’s best to familiarize yourself before you go. In addition, some of these clinics will not see children under 1 year of age.
Free or Low-Cost Clinics
If your child has standard health issues, these clinics could be a good option. You can get blood work done and other free tests at most free clinics around the country. To find a free clinic near you, check out the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or the National Association of Free Clinics.
