Get Care Program

If you are uninsured or underinsured for health care, we can help.

I love this place. When I wasn’t insured, this clinic saved me, and when I was insured I continued to attend this clinic…I refer everyone to this place.

Vecino Health Center’s Get Care program removes the barriers that can get in the way of receiving regular health care. 

We care about your health, not your employment or immigration status. Your personal information is private.
