The Coalition of Community Health Clinics

The Coalition of Community Health Clinics is a network of 13 private, non-profit health clinics located throughout Multnomah County. These clinics provide health services to the uninsured and under-served men, women and children in the Portland Metropolitan area.

The Coalition’s website also gives links to other low-cost healthcare providers in the Portland metropolitan area. Go to and click on the links to find out more information about what services these clinics offer:

Core Wellness Chiropractic & Naturopathic Clinic

Dr. Joel  Roskamp’s treatments consist of hands on, physical medicine including adjusting/manipulation of the spine and extremities, deep tissue “trigger” point therapy, stretching and rehab care.  A person’s full health picture is examined, including  nutrition status and health risk factors.  Patients are sent home with several specific exercises for their particular issue so  individuals can take charge of their own health.

Dr. Roskamp offers a 25% payment at time of services (ptos) discount for those who are paying cash and a 65% discount on the first visit for under/uninsured persons who would not otherwise be able to afford care.  Proof of income is NOT required.  All other treatments would be at the 25% discount. Walk-ins are welcome, but discounted rates are available only with Dr. Roskamp.

Portland Patient/Physician Cooperative

Patient / Physician Cooperatives is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization whose goal is to organize a local, sustainable response to the problem of being uninsured in Oregon.  PPC is not an insurance product nor discount program; it is a group of physicians, health practitioners and patients who have joined together to agree to provide access to affordable, basic health care. It does not currently offer major medical coverage, but may be a good choice for routine health care.
