Community Health Centers (CHCs), also known as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are non-profit, community-based, and patient-centered organizations that deliver comprehensive, integrated primary and preventative health care services to everyone in their communities, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
CHCs offer access to primary health, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy, and substance use disorder services in areas with limited access to affordable health care services.
