Beginning January 4, people who want to become clinic patients can walk in at FMC from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, bringing their photo identification, proof of income, proof of residency in the three-county area (if not shown on photo ID), TennCare denial letter, and food stamp letter.
If you have no proof of income or have questions about the required documentation, please call the clinic in advance to find out what you need to bring to register as a patient.
While clinic services are free, patients are encouraged to make a $5 donation to help offset the cost of their care, if possible.
