CT health centers get $1.7 million in grants

"Supporting health centers across the country helps to achieve that mission". The announcement came during Health Care Center week.

The U.S Department of Health and Human Services announced this week it is awarding almost $4.8 million to 72 health centers across Texas to promote access to care, address disparity and maintain quality of care.

Maple City Health Care Center Inc. was awarded grants in six out of eight categories: Electronic Health Record reporters, Clinical Quality Improvers, Health Center Quality Leaders, Access Enhancers, Address Health Disparities, and achieving Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition.

While members of Congress may not see eye-to-eye on many issues, they have long agreed on the importance of community health centers to our health care system.

The two categories that were not awarded to MPHCC were National Quality Leaders, which had no awards in the state of in, and High Value Cost, which was awarded to two centers in Indiana.

A portion of that money-$50 million a year for the next five years-is meant to go to help cover the cost of providing care to low income patients at Florida's 49 community health centers.

Community health centers provide care to an estimated 1.4 million residents each year.

But the health care centers are concerned they will be hurt financially by the state's plan to give managed-care plans the authority to administer the money in the LIP program. Right now a crisis looms with the scheduled expiration of a fund at the end of September that will result in a significant cut to the budget of every health center.

The agency also released new data showing that almost 26 million people in the United States relied on a federal-funded health center past year.
