Federal Priorities for Community Health Centers

Community health centers provide comprehensive primary and preventative health services to over 30 million people in medically underserved communities. Health centers are non-profit, federally supported safety net providers that treat all patients regardless of income or insurance status. It is important to know that health centers rely on federal grant funding to provide affordable services to uninsured and underinsured patients on a sliding fee scale. Because of this, CaliforniaHealth+ Advocates works in close partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), to track and coordinate responses to federal legislation and budget actions.
