The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
The Florida Association of Community Health Centers was encouraged by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act. Florida’s health centers will continue to provide services to the state’s most vulnerable populations, and we look forward to the critical support that will come from this decision.
Over the past years, FACHC and its member Federally Qualified Health Centers around the state have worked closely with the leadership of Florida to improve our ability to serve more patients. With recent Affordable Care Act funding, we have expanded services through increased site locations, and apply funding for more center hours of operation and Emergency Room diversion projects.
We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with our state and national leaders, and with the momentum of the Affordable Care Act, we will be able to expand access to cost‐effective and affordable health care to more patients in Florida communities that need services.
