Update August 17, 2015:
Today I went for my appointment and I found out that the services are NOT actually free for all as I have mentioned above.
It is completely free unless you are above forty years old.
I think there is a minimum income requirement to enjoy the free services, for those who are still fully-employed.
This morning the staff asked me about my monthly income. As I am unemployed I did get the free checkup without any fuss.
My suggestion is to call up and ask for more details if you are interested in going for the checkup.
