Federally Funded Community Health Centers

The majority of healthcare reform is funded via what is known as compulsory spending, which is not primarily affected by the ongoing budget resolution now a huge issue in Congress. With now having majority in both the senate and congress, the Republicans are targeting the reduction or even complete removal of federal funds to community health centers, claiming either that it was wasteful and unnecessary (AISHealth, 2015). The Republicans also argue that the funds would achieve little among the existing federally sponsored initiatives for health promotion and disease prevention.

The ongoing expansion of community health centers is essential to promote the basic care infrastructure of the State. If the government fails to aid in keeping people safe with the necessary level of funding, the community health centers will be forced to optimize of implement a billing program. Less patient insured by Medicaid, and less funding will lead to a greater percentage of that funding utilized for uninsured patients. This dims it vital to take the reimbursements available from the insurance in order to keep the Community health centers going.
