Community Care Clinics
Richmond County Health Department sees patients with and without health insurance.
For those adults (18 years and older) who live in North Carolina without health insurance, there is a Medical Access Program (MAP). Individuals who are approved for MAP will be able to see a provider in the Community Care Clinic for $20 (increase to $25, January 1st, 2021) which includes necessary lab work. Please call (910)997-8301 to make an appointment to discuss eligibility.
Anyone who may be eligible for another health program such as Medicaid should seek those funds prior to applying for the MAP program.
Our providers encourage you to take an active role in your personal health and well-being – if not for yourself, then for those who love you. Our clinic services are for adults, 21 and older. Our staff and health care providers speak English and Spanish and are here to listen as well as counsel.
