About Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center

The only health care facility of its kind in the Pittsburgh region that provides quality medical and dental care at no cost to individuals who do not have employer-sponsored health insurance, cannot afford private insurance, or who do not qualify for Medicaid or other types of assistance.

The Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center provides free, quality primary medical and dental services, with some specialty care, to uninsured individuals of greater Pittsburgh who meet our eligibility requirements.
    We do not discriminate based on religious beliefs, race, gender, ethnicity, age, or physical disability.
    We provide only health services. We are not a form of health insurance coverage.
    We are not a walk-in clinic. Volunteer doctors and dentists are only available by scheduled appointment.
    We do not treat children under the age of 19.
    In Pennsylvania, children are covered by the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Eligibility Requirements
You may qualify for care if you meet the following three criteria. Eligibility is reevaluated annually.
    You have no coverage under any other health insurance plan for the service for which you are applying, AND
    You have no coverage Medicaid, Medicare or other government supported programs for the services for which you are applying, AND AND
    Your household income does not exceed 200% of the poverty level, based on Federal Poverty Guidelines. (see FPG chart)
Note: Some people with medical coverage may still be eligible for dental and/or vision services provided at the Free Health Care Center

Dental Services
All of our general dental services are provided by licensed dentists, hygienists and oral surgeons. Services include:
    Cleanings
    Exams and X-Rays
    Extractions
    Fillings
    Periodontal Treatment
    Selective Restorative Care
    Please Note:
        We do not have the facilities for a general anesthetic. Most teeth extractions are done by a group of oral surgeons that specialize in extracting teeth. They will use a local anesthetic to numb only the area of your mouth to be worked on.
        Due to limited resources, we are unable to do any cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening. Our main goal is the restoration of good dental health.

Volunteer
Established as a "Volunteers in Medicine" (VIM) facility, the Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center recruits volunteer medical and dental professionals to provide skilled and compassionate care to our patients. We also have many dedicated volunteers who help in non-clinical functions such as answering phone calls and assisting with applications for care. Our volunteers together with our staff care for patients according to the VIM "culture of caring" model that values how an individual is treated just as much as the treatment they receive.
The men and women who volunteer their time and talent at the Free Health Care Center are the cornerstone of our mission and the foundation of our success. Some are retired or semi-retired, while others are still working.
If you would like to join our team as a volunteer, you will see first hand the challenges that face the patients and the Health Care Center each day, and know that the role that you play provides much needed help and creates hope for so many in our community.
Our goal is to make your volunteer experience at the Free Health Care Center as rewarding as possible.
    Your time commitment is up to you. We'll work with you to accommodate your schedule.
    Free nearby parking will be provided.
Note: All clinical and non-clinical volunteers at the Free Health Care Center are required to submit for a Criminal Background Check and a Child Abuse Clearance.
