What is a Community Health Center (CHC)?

Community Health Centers—also called health centers and federally qualified health centers—are private, nonprofits that provide primary care in medically underserved areas. CHCs are the largest network of primary care providers in the country, providing care to over 26 million Americans including over 220,000 Oklahomans. CHCs treat all patients regardless of ability to pay or insurance status. CHCs using sliding fee scales based on patients’ incomes, have after-hours coverage, meet extensive accountability requirements, and are governed by patient-majority boards that reflect the communities they serve.
