Riverside County's only free medical and dental clinic.
The clinic is located in Indio and now occupies a new state-of-the-art facility custom built by the County of Riverside.  The facility houses six patient exam rooms, two fully-equipped dental operatories, other ancillary clinical rooms, and a community room suitable for educational and other group meetings. The clinic receives no federal or state financial support and relies exclusively on donations and grants to fund ongoing operations.

Eligibility Criteria
    You must be a resident of the Coachella Valley.  Evidence of residency will be required.
    You cannot be eligible for any other health care assistance including, but not limited to, Riverside County MISP, Medi-Cal, Veterans Administration, or any employer-funded or private health insurance.
    Your household income cannot exceed 200% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines for your family size.  Family members are defined as parents or guardians, spouses, children, or domestic partners.  VIM will carefully consider household circumstances when counting and considering family-member status; however working family members who have reached the age of 18 must qualify individually.  Full-time college students up to age 24 will be counted as family members.
    We do not treat children.

Services
The clinic provides basic primary acute and preventative medical and dental services to eligible patients.  A referral network of local specialists provide consultation and treatment for conditions that are beyond the scope of the clinic.  We also have a formal referral affiliation with the Riverside County Regional Medical Center for more complex needs, procedures, or hospitalization.

    Preventive and acute care.
    Chronic disease management
    Minor procedures
    Laboratory, Imaging and other diagnostic testing
    Gynecologic services/Well women's preventative care
    Prescription Assistance

Saturday 8:00-12:00.
The clinic is closed on Sunday.

Appointment Availability
Initial appointments for routine chronic or non-urgent care services can typically be made within a 2 week time-frame.  There is minimal œurgent-care  appointment availability on a first-come, first-served basis by appointment within 3 days.  Existing patients are given priority for urgent care appointments.  There is a substantial waiting list for dental services.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline Salary per year
1 $12,760
2 $17,240
3 $21,720
4 $26,200
5 $30,680
6 $35,160
7 $39,640

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
