The Ohio Association of Free Clinics (OAFC) advocates on behalf of Ohio’s free clinics and the people they serve. OAFC is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization with 51 member clinics. We do not provide direct health care services on-site, but support those clinics that do. We also provide referrals to a health clinic for those seeking care. Free clinic services vary, but may include: primary care, prescription assistance, dental, vision, behavioral health and other specialties. Using cost-effective strategies, such as in-kind services and donations of health care resources and time, free clinics provide for the health care needs of their patients. These strategies mean that every dollar invested in free clinics brings nearly $18.00 in care for patients. Free clinics provide access to care for many who find themselves temporarily unemployed or unable to obtain employer-based health insurance.
