Federal Issues

Thanks to broad and longstanding bipartisan support from Congress and Administrations, Community Health Centers now serve as the health care home in medically underserved communities for over 25 million people nationwide. Through NACHC, health centers, their patients and their communities have a collective voice before policymakers on priority issues that affect health care access and delivery for the medically underserved.

Follow NACHC’s blog for an inside view of the latest federal policy developments impacting America’s Health Centers and their more than 25 million patients.
