Medical Care


If you or a family member need medical care, but you don’t have health insurance and you don’t qualify for free health care elsewhere, then you’re in the right place.

The CFC and our network of volunteers and partner health care providers in the Charlottesville community believe that everyone should have access to high-quality health care and that no one should suffer needlessly from treatable medical or dental conditions.

The CFC provides free comprehensive primary care for adults by appointment only including:

  • Treatment for minor acute illnesses like bronchitis, sinus infections, influenza and urinary tract infections.
  • Ongoing care for chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, allergies, thyroid disorders and high cholesterol.
  • Annual gynecological exams, Pap tests, breast exams, mammograms and some birth control for female patients.
  • Preventive medical care like flu shots, physicals, screenings for cancer and diagnostic tests for chronic illnesses.
  • Assessment of mental health concerns and limited services like medication management and short-term therapy.
  • Routine lab and radiology services.

Additionally, the CFC offers:

  • Free medications prescribed by CFC providers (see Pharmacy section).
  • Referrals for free or reduced-cost medical specialists.
  • Limited pediatric care including school physicals.
  • Health & Wellness programs including our Quit Smoking Charlottesville support group and Diabetes Education group.
