Access Community Health Centers is one of more than 1,200 community health centers that provide care to more than 23 million people across the United States. Also called Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), community health centers are local, non-profit care providers serving low income and medically underserved communities.
Federally supported health centers such as Access offer high-quality health care with responsibility placed on a patient’s ability to pay. FQHCs costs of care rank among the lowest. With a focus on prevention, Access reduces the need for more expensive in-patient and specialty care, maximizing local charitable resources and saving taxpayer dollars.
