What is a Community Health Center? Community Health Centers (CHCs) are community-based and patient-directed organizations that serve populations with limited access to health care. CHCs serve as a medical home for consumers by providing primary care and preventive health services.
To truly serve as a medical home and help each patient meet all their health care needs, the health center model goes beyond the primary and preventive health services to also include supportive services. Examples of these services include eligibility assistance for programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, drug assistance, WIC, or local social service support. Many sites serve culturally-diverse populations and translation assistance is also provided for patients facing language barriers.
CHCs provide services available to all with fees adjusted based on ability to pay. Services are determined by the needs of the local community and vary for each clinic site, which may include Dental health services.
