Are you uninsured and in need of medical or dental care?
The Good Samaritan Center May be able to Help
We serve uninsured families who live below 200% of the federal poverty level (for example, a household of four that earns less than $43,000 per year). While our dental clinic only serves Gillespie County, our medical clinic serves Blanco, Gillespie, Kimble, Llano, and Mason Counties. The medical clinic also sees patients from the towns of Comfort and Brady.
