Federal Policy

 

Key federal policy areas:

  • Assure that vulnerable populations have access to health coverage, and timely access to comprehensive, integrated and well-coordinated primary care.
  • Lead the evolution of payment to support advanced models of care to improve access and outcomes for health center patients, and lower system-wide costs in the short and long term
  • Improve alignment of state and national metrics to support effective, quality care for vulnerable populations
  • Strengthen the primary care workforce, particularly in rural and other underserved communities
