Community health centers provide comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations. Grant-supported Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) receive operating funds from HRSA Bureau of Primary Care and meet Medicare and Medicaid criteria enabling them to receive enhanced reimbursement rates. FQHC Look-alikes (FQHC LA) receive no grant funding but can benefit from enhanced Medicare and Medicaid rates. This session identifies the advantages Ryan White Part C grantees can leverage by becoming an FQHC or FQHC LA, identifies the components of a successful application including budget development, program and governance requirements.
