Are there any clinics in Houston that will see uninsured patients? We just moved from the UK. My husband's company's insurance plan doesn't kick in until the 1st of August. Meanwhile, we and our two children are without health insurance for the rest of the month.

We looked into buying insurance via einsurance.com, but it seems silly to pay $400 just to get 20 days of coverage. So, I'm wondering if there are any clinics in Houston that will see the uninsured, particularly uninsured children?

Thanks in advance.

If it's minor illness etc, there are walk-in clinics at HEB and Walgreens. I think the ones at Walgreens are called RediClinic and it's pretty inexpensive. I went once and got a prescription and I think they charged $30.

Yup, that sounds great! Will email you :-) Really hoping you don't need insurance in the next 20 days, but like I said, the walk-in clinic at HEB over at Westheimer and Chimney Rock was a godsend for a time when I was between jobs and needed antibiotics. They won't do things like set broken arms though.

I've mentioned this in other posts before - there are about 13 non-profit community health centers throughout Houston. They are staffed with good doctors and support staff, and offer affordable health care to all. Fees are based on sliding scale. They usually offer discounted labs and pharmaceuticals also. Gateway to Care has all the clinics listed. You can also call to talk to a patient navigator who can guide you to the nearest clinic, or the next appointment at any clinic.
