Free medical clinic in Bloomington

The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community and its library are based in Bloomington, Indiana. Naturally, this means we regularly field calls from people in and around the Bloomington area. There is a growing resource in the community that will be useful for these residents: a free medical clinic for Monroe and Owen county adults who fall 200% beneath the poverty line and don't have medical insurance.

Opened in April 2007, the Volunteers in Medicine clinic is run by volunteers and with support from Bloomington Hospital. The clinic offers at no cost:
  • medications for chronic and acute illnesses with only a low-cost handling fee
  • health education
  • psychological counseling
  • diagnostic laboratory and radiology testing at Bloomington Hospital
  • womens health
  • spine clinic
  • orthopedics
  • behavioral and mental health
  • dental care*
  • pediatric care**
*For dental care, patients will be evaluated at the clinic, and then will be referred to participating local dentists.

**Children of adults who qualify for care at the Volunteers in Medicine clinic will be referred to Southern Indiana Pediatrics for free care.

For more information including location and hours, check out the clinic's website.
