  2. Points of Discussion • History of CHCs in the United States • Community Health Center defined and types of CHCS • Building collaborations and trainings with Community Health Centers

  3. History of Community Health Centers • First clinics opened in 1965, Boston and 1967 in Mount Bayou, MS (neighborhood clinics) • Were developed to provide health and social services access points in poor and medically underserved communities and to promote community empowerment • Health Centers Consolidation Act of 1996 – Public Service Act (330 funds)

  4. What is a community health center? Health centers are community-based and patient-directed organizations that serve populations with limited access to health care.

  5. Health Center Program Fundamentals • Located in or serve a high need community (designated Medically Underserved Area or Population). • Governed by a community board composed of a majority (51% or more) of health center patients who represent the population served. • Providecomprehensive primary health care services as well as supportive services (education, translation and transportation, etc.) that promote access to health care. • Provide services available to all with fees adjusted based on ability to pay. • Meet otherperformance and accountability requirements regarding administrative, clinical, and financial operations.

  6. Types of Health Centers • Community Health Center or Health Center: • An outpatient clinic that receives grant funds from the federal government through §330 of the Public Health Service Act (PHSA). • Look-alike: • An outpatient clinic that meets all requirements to receive §330 grant funds but does not actually receive a grant.

  7. Types of Health Centers • Rural Health Clinic: • An outpatient clinic that may be for profit, is located in a rural HPSA or MUA, and uses nurse practitioners and physician assistants to provide the majority of care. • Tribal or Urban Indian FQHC: • An outpatient clinic or program operated by a tribe or tribal organization or by an urban Indian organization.

  8. Who does the community health center serve? • Low income • Minorities • Elderly • Young people (16-25) • Children

  9. Challenges of Health Centers • Growth in Uninsured: Continue to be Largest Group of Health Center Patients • Decline in Charity Care: Cutbacks by Private Providers Squeezed by Managed Care • Loss of Medicaid and Other Public Funding: Severe “Deficit Reduction” Cuts by States & now Congress • Changing Nature of Insurance Coverage: Growing Shift to Catastrophic/High-Deductible Plans that Cover Little or no Preventive/Primary Care • Shortage of Primary Care Physicians:Growing Demand and Lack of Appeal to U.S. Medical Students is Already Causing Physician Vacancy Rates in Health Centers

  10. Health Center Workforce Shortages • Need 1,843 primary care providers, inclusive of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse midwives. • 1,384 nurses short. • To reach 30 million patients by 2015, health centers need at least an additional 15,585 primary care providers • Health centers also will need another 11,553 to 14,397 nurses.
