Clinic: Every hospital should have a clinic associated with it. Would call the hospital and see what services are available for free or low cost in your area.

Dr. Den is correct. Also, a google search for "free" and/;or "low cost" medical, or dental care in your state or county will usually give resources. Use the links that end with .gov or .edu or .org first, as these are ad-free and more reliable.Your health department can do a great deal for little to no cost, too. Good luck!

Local Health Dpmt: I would ask you start with your local health department. Every county in the us has one. Most of them have associated clinics, but if they don't, they will be able to steer you in the right direction to get low cost or free care. Also, since you are under age 18, you may be eligible for a number of assistance programs if you or your parents cannot afford insurance for you ( through medicaid.).
