For many New Yorkers, (expatriates or not), getting treatment is often synonymous with anxiety. Without health insurance, the prices of services and consultations can sometimes reach huge amounts and discourage patients to seek treatment. Dr. French Morning lists here some addresses to be supported free or at low prices.

Brooklyn Free Clinic

As the name suggests, the Brooklyn Free Clinic offers free consultations for anyone over the age of 18 without medical insurance. A social worker will determine however, depending on your profile, the number of free consultations you can benefit from. Other services are also offered, such as psychiatric consultations, re-education sessions, vaccinations and HIV tests, or gynecological examinations. Brooklyn Free Clinic: 840 Lefferts Avenue, Brooklyn. Information and appointment making here.

Planned Parenthood

With institutions across the country, Planned Parenthood is the most economical solution in the field of gynecological care and sex education. This is, to go quickly, the American equivalent of French Family Planning. Consultations, screenings, abortions or examinations are performed free of charge or at a reduced rate depending on the economic situation of the patient. In New York, five institutions exist and special attention is paid to confidentiality. Men are also welcome. Addresses and info here.

A caries or crown to replace and the note of a consultation at the dentist can quickly turn into a nightmare.

For decay, the price of treatment starts at $ 100 and increases with the severity of the scenario. An emergency cell is also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
