Rural Health Centers

Rural health centers offer basic health care to all residents, regardless of your ability to pay.

  • Rural health centers are located in rural NC communities.
  • All rural health centers accept Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance.
  • If you do not have health insurance or cannot afford medical care, you may qualify for ORH’s Medical Access Plan (MAP).
    • MAP eligibility is based on income.
    • MAP patients pay a co-payment, and the ORH pays the difference for each office visit up to $60.

Eligibility: Anyone may receive basic health services at the rural health centers.

How to Apply: Call the rural health center in your area and schedule an appointment.
