2017 will be a critical year for health centers. The 115th Congress has just begun, and already fundamental changes to the healthcare system are being debated that could greatly impact the work of health centers. Congress is planning to repeal of major provisions of the Affordable Care Act and significant changes to Medicaid, all while they still need to address a looming 70% cut to the Health Centers Program before funding expires September 30th. It is critical that every Member of Congress hear from their constituent health centers on the value and impact that health centers deliver in communities across the country, and that they work closely with us to protect and strengthen the health care system for health centers and their patients in the midst of any changes to come.
