Thanks to all who contacted Congress on behalf of Community Health Centers! The Lower Costs, More Transparency Act (H.R. 5378) -- which provides multi-year funding for health centers and primary care workforce programs -- passed in the U.S. House of Representatives tonight by a vote of 320-71.

Details in NACHC's statement:
"House lawmakers have passed bipartisan legislation that provides an extension and critical increase in Community Health Center funding. The vote (320-71 with one voting present) brings the nation’s largest primary care network one step closer to ending the fiscal uncertainty that has stretched on for months, disrupting health center operations and the ability of health centers to hire and plan services for the 1 in 11 Americans who depend on them for care.

'We are deeply appreciative for the bipartisan leadership of House lawmakers who recognize the lifesaving work that Community Health Centers carry out every day, preventing disease and costly ER visits,' said Kyu Rhee, MD, MPP. 'Long-term and increased funding for health centers is an important investment in our nation’s health and the only way the 300,000 professionals who care for the millions of patients at health centers can continue to do the job that Congress asks them to do.'

'As the CEO of a health center, I am incredibly grateful to our congressional representatives for passing this bill today,' said Paloma Hernandez, MS, MPH, NACHC Board Chair, and President & CEO of URBAN HEALTH PLAN, INC. 'The federal funding that our health centers receive supports our workforce programs as well as the direct care provided to over 31 million patients. Sustainable and predictable funding will allow our 1400 health centers across the country to carry out our core mission of providing high-quality healthcare in medically underserved communities without regard to patient insurance coverage or ability to pay.'

Passage of The Lower Costs, More Transparency Act (H.R. 5378) provides a 10% funding increase over two years and three months when health centers care for a record number of patients at 31.5 million. The measure also extends and increases funding for essential primary care workforce programs –- the National Health Service Corps and Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education programs, which support residents and providers who practice in underserved communities.

The vote comes as thousands of health center advocates nationwide urged the House of Representatives to pass the bill, launching a massive advocacy push with scores of emails, calls, and visits to Capitol Hill. NACHC also hosted a briefing hours before the scheduled vote to underscore how the funding uncertainty – which has languished for months – has created unprecedented pressures on health centers, which typically operate on razor-thin margins."

☎️ Pick up the phone TODAY! We're asking all health center supporters to CALL their U.S. Representative and ask them to vote yes on a funding bill. The "Lower Costs, More Transparency Act (H.R. 5378)" is expected to be voted on this week in the U.S. House of Representatives -- maybe even today! This bill provides a 10% increase and multi-year funding for Community Health Centers and primary care workforce programs.

VIP Community Services CEO Debbian Fletcher-Blake said, “VIP is pleased that the Governor is invested in the care of people with mental illness and substance use disorder. Her support for CCBHCs will undoubtedly change the way care is delivered in our State. This model of care symbolizes true integrated care. This funding is an investment in equitable health care for New Yorkers. I appreciate both OASAS and OMH for investing in this model.”

📢 It's time for New York State to ! 📢

A new Urban Institute report report highlights the discrepancy between patient care costs and Medicaid reimbursement rates for Community Health Centers in New York State. Specifically, the report makes clear that current Medicaid rates, which were created in 1999, cover only 70 cents on the dollar of costs per patient.

CHCANYS urges lawmakers in New York State to pass legislation that would compel the NYS Department of Health to change its payment methodology and create new, sustainable Medicaid rates for CHCs.
