Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC)
Improving Health of Under-Served and Vulnerable Populations
Federally Qualified Health Centers are extremely important safety net providers in rural or underserved communities. FQHCs are outpatient clinics that qualify for very specific reimbursement rates and are billed under Medicare and Medicaid. FQHCs include community health centers, migrant health centers, healthcare for the homeless health centers, public housing primary care and health center program “look-alikes”.
