How to Become a Patient

Good Samaritan Community Health is a primary healthcare clinic which provides free medical services to Dade County’s low income, uninsured population, regardless of race, creed, occupation, national origin or immigrant’s status. The clinic operates through the collaborative efforts of Kendall Brazilian Church, Florida Health Department, a host of voluntary specialists and private donors, and Baptist Health South Florida, which is the clinic’s principal resource provider. Those who are eligible to receive care at Good Samaritan must meet 3 criteria:

  • To be uninsured (have no Medicare, Medicaid, private or any other form of insurance)
  • To have a total family income below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guideline
  • To live in Miami-Dade County, South of Flagler Street

To become a patient, the interested individuals must complete an application form at the Good Samaritan Clinic, and meet with a representative of our Human Services, bringing proof of income and residency, as well as a Photo Identification. Eligibility criteria is reviewed every year minimum. Our services are offered on a temporary basis until the individual(s) or families are eligible for any form of health insurance, or obtain medical care elsewhere.
