Community Health Centers: A 2012 Profile and Spotlight on Implications of State Medicaid Expansion Decisions

Community health centers are an integral part of the health care safety-net, providing access to care for over 21 million people in the U.S. The ACA made a major investment in the health center program, and expanded health coverage will provide new revenues to health centers, permitting grant funding to support care of the uninsured to go further. This annual update provides a pre-ACA snapshot of community health centers and also examines newly reported data on “look-alike” health centers. In addition, the brief highlights significant differences between the profiles and revenue situations of health centers in Medicaid expansion and non-expansion states in 2012, before the ACA coverage expansions took effect. Finally, it considers financial challenges facing health centers and the implications of state Medicaid decisions for health centers and their capacity to ensure access to care for low-income communities they serve.
