According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), FQHCs hold significant advantages, including eligibility for funding under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS). They also enjoy enhanced reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, among other benefits. FQHCs primarily serve underserved areas or populations and offer a sliding fee scale. These centers provide comprehensive services such as preventive health, dental, mental health, substance abuse, transportation, hospital care, and specialty care. To maintain quality standards, FQHCs have ongoing quality assurance programs and a governing board of directors. Certain tribal organizations and FQHC Look-Alikes may also be eligible for special Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.
