Together, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Reconciliation Bill make unprecedented investments in Community Health Centers and fundamentally change the country's health insurance and health care delivery systems.  The dramatic expansion of insurance coverage and Medicaid will mean more people can afford to seek the primary and preventive care that health centers provide.  The new law's direct investment in health centers and in the primary care workforce, payment protections for health centers, and other key policy changes will provide a necessary backbone of support as the  Federal Health Centers Program continues to grow to serve millions of new patients in thousands of new communities nationwide.
