investors_logoJed Graham of reports on three federal health programs facing significant funding cliffs – Medicaid reimbursement rates, community health centers and CHIP – and the impact of not extending funding under the Affordable Care Act. Focusing on community health centers, Graham cites a recently published report from the Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative at Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University. The article describes the impact of the funding cliff on CHCs, particularly the reduction in access to primary care services for America’s poor and near poor citizens. In addition, Graham points out that without new resources, community health centers may see a 6.7 million drop in patients served by 2020.
