Thankfully around here there is a clinic based on your income. Since this area is very poor most people doctor there. They also have a contract with a local pharmacy that offers discounts to the clients of that clinic. Plus the doctors will look up cost of a medicine before writing a prescription. Also they have lots of free samples which they give to their patients. There is a medical office and a dentist office. It would be nice if everywhere had a place like this.
