The Bennington Free Clinic is a medical clinic that provides free primary medical care, care coordination, and referral to uninsured adult residents of Bennington County and the surrounding area whose incomes are under 400% of federal poverty. We also screen all of our patients to determine if they are eligible for health insurance and other methods of accessing health care and we work with them to ensure they can become enrolled.
