Walk in Clinics

Walk in Clinics

In North Dakota there are a number of clinics that will work with you if you don’t have insurance. They have limited hours due to the fact that they are most likely volunteers. I know one of the clinics in Minot, ND is only open on Mondays. The link with this post will give a list of all clinics that participate in the program in ND. If you are in another state and would like to know where there is a free clinic just google free clinics in (your area). You can call the phone number for the clinic and get details. Ask them a couple basic questions.

1. What is the cost for being seen, if any?

2. What types of services does the clinic offer?

3. Do you know of any other Doctors or clinics in the area that offer services for the uninsured or underinsured?



Some of you may find yourself in an insurance nightmare. Let me give you an example from hypothetical reality. Lets just say there is a teacher contemplating retirement. As they start the last semester of school before retirement the realization hits them that they are only 62 and will need to find a new health insurance policy. All of a sudden there’s an extra $800 or so they didn’t plan on putting toward an insurance policy every month. Now they took a pay cut AND an insurance increase! It’s no wonder people have heart attacks!┬áThis doesn’t always happen and if you are fortunate enough to have Medicare available, check out the website at and see what’s offered.
