The Freelancers Medical program invites 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. If you decide that the Freelancers Medical program is right for you, we'd like to be your sole primary care provider and will ask that you officially designate your primary care doctor as such.
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!
