The Free Medical Clinic now has appointment openings for new patients from Anderson, Morgan, and Roane counties.
To qualify for free medical care at the clinic, patients must live in one of the three counties, have no medical insurance of any kind (no private insurance, no TennCare, no Medicare), and have a household income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The chart below shows the income criteria to be seen at FMC:

New patients wanting to pre-register for clinic services should come to FMC Monday-Thursday from 9 am.-2 p.m., bringing their photo identification and proof of income. If possible, new patients will be scheduled for a same-day appointment.
Patients are encouraged to make a $5 donation to help offset the cost of their care, if possible.
