The Geiger Gibson / RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative today released a new research brief entitled “Grantee-Level Estimates Show that 31 Percent of All Health Centers would Fail to Meet Tier Two Status under HRSA’s Proposed MUA/MUP/HPSA Designation Regulations.”

This analysis shows that nearly one-third of all health centers would fail to qualify for Tier Two designation under HRSA’s proposed designation process.

This is the third brief in a continuing research series issued by the Collaborative, and updates prior work released April 14, 2008 by researchers in the Department of Health Policy, The George Washington University Medical Center School of Public Health and Health Services.
