PATIENT INFORMATION:

United Way of Nevada County strives to assure that individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their basic needs for FOOD, EMERGENCY SHELTER & ACCESS to HEALTH  CARE. 


That's why United Way of Nevada County is hosting  the 2020 Grass Valley Free 2-day Health Clinic along with California CareForce!  Over  a two-day period, about 500 patients per day will receive  medical,  dental and vision services free of charge.  The biggest need is dental and vision care, as they are rarely covered in standard insurance policies, nor are they covered in Medicare. Complete eye exams will be available, including tests for glaucoma.  Patients may receive a prescription that is theirs to keep and is good for two years. Then that patient may pick out a new pair of eyeglass frames, and go home with brand new glasses made on site just for them.  The CareForce can make 250 brand new pairs of glasses each day. 


The 60 dental chairs CareForce with water and suction, will patients with cleanings, fillings and  extractions. A Panograph machine will take a full set of X-rays for each  patient. Some local dental care providers will be donating post-clinic services as well.
