So says Michelle King Robson of empowher.com, the Internets first online medical encyclopedia for women.
Robson has launched a database of free and low-cost health events on her site, and says there are lots of freebies just waiting to be discovered.
Many community organizations, non-profits, and hospitals offer free heart screenings, flu vaccinations, and mammograms to the public.
The biggest freebie Robson has found to date comes from the Susan G. Komen Foundation which provides full coverage for uninsured women with breast cancer.
Robson suspects the average American can save thousands of dollars using free health services, they just have look around.
She says some hospitals offer up to 2,000 free events a year and local churches and schools are also great resources for freebies.
Robson urges providers to post their events on her site and hopes to one day host a health scavenger hunt to prove that an underground world of free healthcare exists.
