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.
