You’ll have unlimited access to primary care services and free wellness classes and events. Please note that you will still be responsible for labwork and other services that are sent out to other providers, such as labs or specialists, as well as for visiting another physician, provider, urgent care clinic or emergency room (even if referred by Freelancers Medical).

We have two state-of-the-art practices, one in downtown Brooklyn and one in lower Manhattan. Plenty of time is built into the appointment schedule to keep your wait time as short as possible.
Yes. The doctors are board certified in family practice and care for patients of all ages, including children.
We’re sorry but no, the medical practice is only available by choosing a plan through Freelancers Union and Empire BlueCross BlueShield that has a medical home rider.
If you choose a plan that includes Freelancers Medical, you must designate one of the doctors from Freelancers Medical as your PCP. We invite you to come meet the doctors and health care professionals, each of whom would welcome the chance to provide you with the quality, personal health care you deserve.
Freelancers Medical is built into certain insurance plans offered through Freelancers Union. If you stop your insurance, you won't be able to keep getting care through the Freelancers Medical program.
Doctors are always easy to reach, and responsive. Use our patient app to send an email or text message, or set up an appointment for a video chat or phone conversation. And of course you can come in – and even schedule same-day appointments when you need them.
If it's late at night or a weekend afternoon, you can always reach your doctor and get the help you need right away.
Just fill out a short form on the Freelancers Union website. (Sign-in required.)
We do have plans in the works to open additional Freelancers Medical locations in upper Manhattan and New Jersey. Stay tuned for more details!
