Community health centers (CHCs) provide high quality comprehensive health care to patients regardless of their ability to pay. For millions of Americans, community health centers offer services that include physical examinations, preventive services, behavioral health care, dental/oral health care, substance abuse counseling, nutrition education and sometimes more!
The quality of care at community health centers equals and can surpass the care provided by other primary care providers. Through their broad menu of primary and preventives services, they can offer a one-stop -shopping experience for families and individuals.
CHC’s welcome Medicaid and Medicare patients, and also accept Marketplace insurance plans and other forms of private insurance. CHC’s were created to serve medically underserved populations and provide appropriate and necessary services with fees adjusted on a patient’s ability to pay.
So find a CHC near you and connect to services in your community!
We admit that there's no magic pill, but getting linked and retained in care is vital in the effort to address all HIV infections.
