nbc news logoMaggie Fox of NBC News highlights the role many Community Health Centers will play in the lives of millions more Americans who will receive coverage under the Affordable Care Act, and what Health Centers are doing to prepare for the potential influx of new patients.  However, the 2012 Supreme Court ruling allowing states to opt out of Medicaid expansion leaves out the poorest of the poor in non-expansion states.  Maggie Fox interviews Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative’s Dr. Peter Shin, where he describes how poor residents in opt-out states are essentially left out of health reform, and the challenges community health centers will face to continue to treat the uninsured.
