Plain City Free Clinic Offers Free Medical Care for Eligible Patients.

The Plain City Free Clinic continues to be open most Saturday mornings. The sessions take place in Dr. John Adams’ medical office located at 480 South Jefferson Avenue (which is Route 42), Suite 500. Dr. Adams’ office is directly behind Plain City Druggist and across the road from Der Dutchman restaurant.

For patients meeting specific guidelines, free medical office visits are provided. Medical needs outside of routine office care are referred to other providers who have agreed to offer services at reduced costs or at no charge.

A person does not have to be a previous patient of Dr. Adams to use the Free Clinic.

The Plain City Free Clinic is a satellite office of the Madison County Health Partners, which additionally operates a free clinic in London, Ohio.

The eligibility guidelines to qualify as a Plain City Free Clinic patient are:

1. The person must be a resident of the Plain City area (live in either the Jonathan Alder or the Fairbanks School Districts).

2. Currently be without health insurance.

3. Meet a household income guideline (200% of the federal poverty level or below).

To qualify, the total household income for a family of four should be $41,000 per year or less.

On clinic day, the patient needs to bring a photo ID and a proof of residency (utility bill, etc.). Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Plain City Free Clinic Offers Healthcare for Those in Need. By Kelly Banker, Our Pharmacy Student Who is Gone, But NOT Forgotten!

The Plain City Free Clinic is a satellite office of Madison County Health Partners, offering free medical services to uninsured residents in the southern one-third of Union County and northern one-third of Madison County. The clinic offers free doctor’s visits for routine medical conditions and provides referrals for laboratory services and other medical needs that can’t be taken care of at the clinic. Patients from the clinic may be referred to providers who have agreed to provide services at reduced or no cost for medical needs, including women’s health and mental health. The Plain City Free Clinic helps patients who qualify sign up for free medications through manufacturer’s patient assistance programs and also provides vouchers through Plain City Druggist so that patients can get their medications at no cost to them. Additionally, the clinic offers spiritual guidance by offering interested patients the opportunity to meet with a prayer partner. The clinic does NOT provide controlled substances, including narcotics.

The intention of the Plain City Free Clinic is to help those who are making a sincere effort to help themselves and their families. In our current healthcare system, many patients are without health insurance due to inability to pay increasing premiums, inability to obtain full-time work, or they are employed by employers who do not offer medical insurance. A $5 donation per visit is suggested in order to control costs and as an acknowledgement of the importance of provided health services.

The Clinic is held Saturdays from 9 am-11 am in the offices of Dr. John E. Adams II in Plain City, 480 South Jefferson Avenue (Route 42), Suite 500. An appointment is required. Patients with extenuating circumstances may call to arrange an appointment outside of regular clinic hours if necessary. Patients must meet the following three criteria in order to qualify:

  1. Live in the Plain City area (Jonathan Alder or Fairbanks school districts)
  2. Be currently without health insurance (private or government including Medicare and Medicaid)
  3. Have a household income of 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines or less, based on family size

An initial phone interview will be conducted to verify that a potential patient qualifies. Qualifying income requirements are also available at the local library, 305 West Main Street in Plain City. If you (or someone you know) are in need of medical care or have questions about whether you qualify, please contact Charles and Zeta Holcombe at (614) 873-8600. You may also contact Jane with the Plain City Public Library at (614) 873-4912, Ext. 28.
