Who can come?
Anyone, including children ages 8-17, those without insurance, those who are without financial means to pay for basic healthcare. We also serve those who speak Spanish exclusively and need an interpreter.
How does it work?
Prospective clients are encouraged to arrive for check-in as close to 4 p.m. as possible to ensure a good position in line. While waiting for the patient visits to begin at 6:30 p.m., clients are invited to take part in the Wednesday night meal in the Commons.
Do you turn people away?
Anyone with immediate trauma needs will be referred to Parkland. After capacity has been reached for a given clinic night, overflow clients are encouraged to return the following week. The hope for 2013 is to expand clinic hours in order to accommodate more patients.
How many care providers do you have and how many patients can you see each Wednesday?
There are around 20 regular M.D.'s, P.A.'s, and nurse practitioners on our volunteer team. Our administrative volunteer base (check-in volunteers, greeters, supply stockers, cleaning crew) comprise between 35-40 people. Volunteers rotate weeks, which allows the 2435 Clinic to see approximately 15-20 patients each week.
Do you need a medical degree to get involved?
Absolutely not! While the 2435 Clinic is always looking for qualified medical professionals to provide the highest level of care to each patient, we are also looking for warm, welcoming people to interact with patients as they come ' helping guests get checked in, listening to their stories, and shepherding them through their clinic visit.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the 2435 Clinic website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*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%.
