  •  My wife is going to Knox County Health Clinic (6+ / 0-)

    Its a free clinic in Rockland, ME started by a doctor retired from Brigham and Woman's. They get no government aid so have to depend on donations.

    They borrow from or share space with a  family planning clinic and depend on volunteers for staff but were able to arrange for diagnostics at Pen Bay; CAT Scan and phlebotomy for about $3 large.

    There may be a free program to help with bills but we aren't in that yet. She will be eligible for medicare in May but had to quit her job because she's already too sick to work.
