Federally Qualified Health Centers are health care clinics that will both accept insurance, and work with uninsured on a sliding scale to offer services.
In Georgia, all Federally Qualified Health Centers are housed under the Georgia Primary Care Association. The Georgia Primary Care Association, designated as the state’s primary care association by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, also work in advocacy efforts, improving quality of existing Federally Qualified Health Centers, insurance and medicaid enrollment assistance, and establishment of new Federally Qualified Health Centers.
