Local Clinics

There are local clinics that offer medical care at accessible prices. They can help with regular check-ups, getting vaccines, and sometimes with dental or mental health care too. Some clinics may accept Medicaid or Medicare. You can also check with your clinic to see if they are able to lower appointment costs based on how much you can afford to pay, be sure to ask your provider about payment options before your visit!

Health Confianza’s health professionals and Community Health Workers put together this list of local clinics.

Community Health Workers


Have a health-related question? Ask a Community Health Worker! Community Health Workers (CHWs), also known as Promotores, are frontline public health workers and trusted members of the community. CHWs are not medical providers, but they can have state-issued certificates in community health work. CHWs often live in the same neighborhoods as the people they assist, so they understand the struggles and problems you may face. They can give advice, recommend places to get medical help at low prices, and answer questions about staying healthy. The best part is, they do all this for free!

View our list of Community Organizations, all of which offer CHWs.

Becoming a Community Health Worker – CHWs serve as bridge between the community and health and social services. CHWs help the community gain access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.

If you’re interested in becoming a Community Health Worker, visit HealthConfianza.org for more information.

Financial Assistance

Preventive Health

Preventive care is for people of all ages.

Children need regular well-child and dental visits to track their development and find health problems early when they are usually easier to treat. Services like screenings, dental check-ups, and vaccinations are key to keeping people of all ages healthy.

Hispanics, African Americans, Asian and Pacific Islanders and Native Americans in Texas have higher rates of chronic illness such as diabetes and heart disease. Preventive care can help you figure out the right plan for counseling, nutrition and medication (if needed) to be as healthy as possible.

Yes, you can receive preventive care if you are uninsured or under-insured. Health Confianza recommends the following:

Adults and Children

  • Carelink, a University Health financial assistance program that allows you to access quality healthcare services. View our FAQ on CareLink for how to qualify.
  • Local clinics and community health centers, some offer sliding scale payment for primary healthcare services. View our local clinics list.

Children and Youth (before 19th birthday) 

  • Medicaid or CHIP
  • Many cities have school-based clinics which do not ask immigration status and are low-cost or free.

For more information on getting insured, view our FAQ on insurance options.

CareLink is a financial assistance program through the University Health System that allows you to access quality healthcare services. CareLink gives access to many health services, but it does not cover all. For example, it does not cover transplants, dialysis, and other costly procedures.

To see if you qualify, call 210-358-3350 or apply at CareLink.

You have the right to receive preventive care. Some clinics and resources do not require documentation or insurance. In Bexar County, you do not need to tell the health provider your immigration status to receive care. While healthcare providers may inquire about your status when applying for insurance, you do not have to tell them your immigration status.

It is a good idea to carry a photo I.D. with you to medical appointments. The San Antonio Public Library offers an Enhanced Library Card, which serves as a document with your name, address, and picture. This card, along with other documents, can help establish your identity. Learn more about the Enhanced Library Card at https://guides.mysapl.org/enhancedlibrarycard/FAQ.

Remember, your immigration status should not stop you from accessing the preventive care needed to maintain your health and well-being.

Texas is home to programs that pay for preventative care and contraceptive services for women’s healthcare. One such program is the Healthy Texas Women’s Program, which provides women’s health and family planning services. In Bexar County, these services can also be accessed at University Health clinics, CommuniCare and other community health centers.

View our list of local clinics for more options.

The Alamo Area Resource Center (AARC) and UT Health San Antonio’s student-run Pride Community Clinic, located within the ARRC, offer LGBTQ care and services.

AARC’s services include HIV-STI Testing, PREP/PEP, HIV Specialty Care, LGBTQ Primary Care and Transgender Health.

A vaccination is a way to keep you safe and prevent you from getting sick. Vaccines strengthen your immune system and help your body be more prepared to fight bacteria or viruses. Vaccines are also called immunizations. They can be administered through injections, but some are given by mouth or sprayed into the nose. The U.S. Federal Drug Administration approves all vaccines before public release to make sure they are safe and work well.

For immunizations, local health departments, such as the MetroHealth Immunization Clinics, are an excellent low-cost resource and do not require documentation of immigration status.

If your child is on Medicaid or CHIP, your child will be covered for immunizations. Both adults and children can receive basic immunizations at retail pharmacies and community health fairs.

The vaccines you need might differ depending on age, health status, where you live, and the kind of job you have. Common vaccines that most people get to stay healthy are measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, hepatitis, the flu, tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, and shingles.

View the immunization calendar for Adults, Children

The COVID-19 vaccine is a preventive way to protect you against the COVID virus. Multiple types of COVID-19 vaccines are available worldwide. These vaccines help fight off the virus without making you sick. COVID boosters are additional doses of medicine that you get after the first vaccination series. In the case of COVID-19, booster vaccines help your body stay protected for a longer period of time.

The influenza vaccine, also called the flu vaccine, is recommended for most individuals. The flu vaccine is especially important for certain groups of people who could have increased health risks if they get the flu. These groups include people 65 years old or older, young children, pregnant women, people with long-term health problems, healthcare workers, or people who spend time with those who are more likely to get sick.

Mpox, or monkeypox, is a viral infection that does not cause serious illness. Early symptoms of mpox include rashes, bumps, or blisters on or around the genitals, hands, feet, chest, or face. It may also cause flu-like symptoms such as feeling tired, fevers, headaches, and chills.

Mpox is a communicable disease, which means it can spread to others. It can spread from the time symptoms start until the rash has fully healed. In the current Mpox outbreak, the virus is spreading through sexual contact; however, infections have occurred through other exposures, including non-sexual contact with infected areas. Getting vaccinated for Mpox can help make symptoms less severe and easier to manage. If you experience Mpox symptoms, it’s important to get tested, even if you’ve been vaccinated.

Find an Mpox vaccine site near you.

The City of San Antonio and The University of Texas Health Science Center offer Quitxt, a free bilingual text-message or Facebook messenger service to support you on your journey to quit tobacco products. For more information about tobacco cessation programs, call UT Health San Antonio’s primary care practice at 210-450-9100.

If you can’t find what you need on this page, there are additional online tools that offer local health and social services resources. We recommend the San Antonio Community Resource Directory and the University Health’s Find Help tool.

Health Screenings and Tests

A physical exam, sometimes called a wellness check, is a picture of your overall health. During a physical exam your provider will listen to your heart and lungs, look into your ears, look into your mouth, check your skin and other areas of your body. If you have specific concerns, a healthcare provider may look closely at the affected part of your body. A physical exam takes about 30 minutes. Most healthcare providers recommend you get a physical exam each year.

How does it help? A physical exam gives you an idea of your general health. A health provider will give you the results of your exam and tell you if there are any areas of concern. Depending on your results, your provider may order additional tests or ask for a follow-up appointment.

A physical exam is a good way for you to establish a relationship with a provider in the event of an illness or injury. It is your time to bring up any health concerns or questions. It’s one of the best ways to stay on top of your health.

A cholesterol test is when a doctor takes a small amount of your blood to check your cholesterol levels. They call it a “lipid profile.”

What does it tell you? The test tells you about two kinds of cholesterol: the bad one is called Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and the good one is called High-density lipoprotein (HDL). It also checks for another type of fat in your blood called Triglycerides, which indicates the total amount of cholesterol in your blood.

How does it help? This common test helps determine whether you should take steps to lower your risk for heart disease and stroke. This could mean lifestyle changes or cholesterol-lowering medicine.

A Blood Pressure Screening is a test that checks how hard your heart is pumping by measuring pressure in the arteries. A blood pressure test may be done as a part of a routine health check-up, or as a screening for high blood pressure also known as hypertension.

Why is it done? Health providers usually do blood pressure tests during regular check-ups to make sure everything is okay.

What does it tell you? The test can tell if your blood pressure is too high or too low. If it’s too high, it means your heart must work hard harder to pump blood and oxygen through the body. This can lead to chest pain, heart disease, kidney damage and more.

A health provider may put you on medication. There are more things you can do to help, like eating less salt, exercising more, and cutting out smoking.

View blood pressure categories and what they mean.

A cardiac screening is when a health provider checks your heart to see if everything is okay. They use different tests to do this.

How is it typically done? First, they measure how tall you are, how much you weigh, and your blood pressure. Then, they take a small amount of blood to check for things like cholesterol and blood sugar. They might use a finger prick or a needle for this. Lastly, they check blood pressure again, but this time using a special cuff wrapped around your arm.

How does it help? Doing these tests helps your health provider find out if there are any problems with your heart. They can use this information to develop treatment plans, prescribe medications and/or recommend medical procedures.

If you already have a heart condition or have had a heart attack or stroke before, you might need to get testing done more often to make sure you’re staying healthy.

A Type 2 Diabetes screening is when a health provider checks to see if you have diabetes.

What will it tell you? A common test, called the A1C test, tells the health provider how much sugar is in your blood over the past few months. The results of the A1C test will show if your blood sugar is normal, if you have a condition called prediabetes, or if you have diabetes.

How does it help? Doing this screening is important because it helps the health provider catch if you have Type 2 diabetes early. If you have it, they can make a plan to help you stay healthy. This might include making changes to the way you live, taking medicine if needed, and checking your blood sugar levels regularly. This can prevent health issues related to diabetes including heart disease, chronic kidney disease, nerve damage, and other problems with feet, oral health, vision, hearing and mental health.

People with diabetes, hypertension and a family history are all at risk of kidney disease. African Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, and people over 65 are also at increased risk.

Your health care provider will help decide if you need a Kidney Disease screening. It involves urine and blood tests to check how well your kidneys are working.

What will it tell you? The tests will tell your health care provider if your kidneys are working properly and if there is any damage. If you have kidney disease, it cannot be reversed, but you can still take steps to manage it and slow down its progress. This will help keep your body healthier.

How does it help? Screening for kidney disease is important because it helps find problems early and allows you to make healthy choices to take care of your kidneys.

Some things you can do to protect your kidney health is keeping a healthy weight, controlling your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and avoiding using tobacco.

Take the Kidney Foundation’s quiz on kidney health.

A Liver Disease screening is a way to check if your liver is healthy. It involves doing tests called liver function tests. These tests are blood tests that can show if there are any problems with your liver.

What will it tell you? The tests measure the levels of certain things in your blood, like enzymes and proteins. By looking at these levels, the healthcare provider can see how well your liver is working.

How does it help? Liver function tests can help screen for liver infections and monitor the progression of diseases like hepatitis. Tests can tell you how serious a liver condition may be and tell you if it is a side effect of medications. Remember, it is important to talk with healthcare professionals. They will give you the right diagnosis and explain what test results mean for you. They can also give personalized advice based on your specific health needs.

A Body Mass Index (BMI) screening uses weight and height to estimate body fat.

How can it help? A BMI screening can help determine if you are at risk of weight-related health issues. These issues include heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Screenings can help health providers give you accurate advice and guidance on how to stay healthy.

If a health provider recommends exercise or dietary changes, there are local, affordable resources for weight management. For instance, YMCA of San Antonio offers a variety of health and fitness classes including the Y Weight Loss Program. Also, HEB Wellness Nutrition Services has licensed dietitians that can offer guidance and help with meal planning. HEB Wellness Nutrition Services accepts insurance, but it is not needed.

An addiction screening is when doctors or counselors check if someone has a problem with drugs or other harmful substances. They do this by asking questions and talking to the person to better understand their situation. Sometimes, providers might also do tests like checking blood or urine, but those tests don’t directly diagnose addiction. They are more helpful in keeping track of how someone is doing during treatment and recovery.

How does it help? Once someone is diagnosed, there are different types of counseling available. This counseling is done by professionals like psychiatrists, psychologists, or licensed alcohol and drug counselors. They provide guidance and support to help the person overcome their addiction and lead a healthier life.

Visit BeWellTexas for connection to affordable addiction treatment and recovery services anywhere in Texas.

A Mental Health Screening is a process used to diagnose mental health conditions. It usually involves a physical exam, lab tests and a psychological evaluation. During the evaluation, a mental health professional talks to you about symptoms, thoughts, feeling and behavior patterns.

How does it help? Your mental health is an important part of your overall health. Getting an accurate diagnosis will help determine the best treatment options to improve your well-being.

View our list of clinics for mental health services.

HIV testing determines if you have Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), and STI testing checks for sexually transmitted infections. Some common STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis.

How does it help? These tests help with early detection, treatment, and prevention of HIV and other STIs. STIs can cause serious health problems if left untreated. For women, this includes cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and pregnancy problems.

View our list of clinics for HIV/STI testing and services.

Visiting a Healthcare Provider

You should always feel comfortable asking your health provider questions. They want to help you understand so that you take the steps to be healthier.

During every visit with a healthcare provider, ask these three questions. 1. What is my main problem? 2. What do I need to do? 3. Why is it important for me to do this?

View our “Ask Me 3” flyer.

If you still don’t understand what the health provider said, don’t be afraid to say you don’t understand. Ask the health provider to explain it again in a simple way.

You can also try help lines such as University Health’s 24-hour NurseLink, which gives you access to nurses that can help answer your questions or concerns.

Reading a prescription correctly is important for taking medication safely and preventing serious illness. It is also important for parents and caregivers who are giving medications to loved ones.

Always follow the instructions on the prescription carefully and never take medication without a prescription or the advice of a healthcare professional.

View our “How to Read a Prescription Label” flyer.

Every patient, regardless of legal status, has rights. These rights include the right to care and the right to consent to or refuse medical care. View the State of Texas’s Patient Rights and Responsibilities Resource Page.

You have the right to ask for a translator if a health provider doesn’t speak your language. Language barriers should not stop you from asking questions or expressing your concerns.

For medical appointment transportation in the San Antonio area, you can contact VIA. See VIA’s reduced fare and passes for riders who qualify.

Dental Check-ups, Eye Exams and Hearing Tests

Oral health means taking care of your teeth and mouth. It is important for your overall health. That’s why it’s a good idea to go to the dentist regularly for check-ups.

What should I expect at a dental exam? During a dental exam, you can expect your dentist or dental hygienist to perform several procedures to check your overall oral health:

  • Medical history review
  • Visual examination
  • Dental X-rays
  • Periodontal assessment or evaluate your gum health
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Oral hygiene instructions
  • Treatment planning

What does it help with? Visiting your dentist helps you identify any dental issues such as gum disease or cavities. Additionally, there are a growing but limited number of studies linking periodontal (gum) disease to health conditions including diabetes, heart disease, respiratory infections, and dementia. Maintaining good oral health can help support your overall health.

The best way to maintain your oral health is to brush your teeth twice a day and floss every day.

An eye care professional, called an optometrist or ophthalmologist, performs eye exams. They check your vision and make sure your eyes are healthy. They will also be able to address any concerns and recommend treatments, if needed.

How does it help? Eye care is important for people with chronic conditions such as diabetes. Diabetics are at a higher risk of glaucoma, blindness, cataracts, and other eye disorders. By going to the eye doctor and following their advice, you can keep your eyes healthy.

A hearing test should take about 30 minutes, and it’s painless. Most adults who get hearing tests are asked to wear earphones and listen to short tones that are played at different volumes and pitches into one ear at a time.  Experts recommend that adults get their hearing tested every 10 years until age 50, and then every 3 years after that.

What will it tell you? The results can show whether you have hearing loss in one or both ears and how much hearing is gone.

How does it help you? You can’t restore hearing loss but there are ways to make up for it, such as hearing aids, and protect the hearing that you still have.

Both Sam’s Club and Costco offer free hearing test for their adult members. The city of San Antonio offers a list of adult and pediatric hearing test providers.


Remember that food is medicine. There are ways to make nutritious choices while still enjoying your favorite foods.

• Use less sugar, fat, and salt when cooking.
• Include more vegetables in your meals.
• Use traditional cooking methods like steaming or grilling.
• Add more flavor with ingredients like olive oil, avocado oil and herbs to make your meals more tasty and healthy at the same time.

By making small changes and choosing healthier ingredients, you can add your own spin to your favorite foods.
