Affordable Health Care and Healthy Communities: The Importance of Community Health Center in Light of the Movement Toward Health care Reform
In a traditional sense, while the Community Health Centers (CHCs) focus primarily on serving people without insurance, anyone is welcome to go to a CHC. As the U.S. as a nation is struggling to figure out the first best way to provide health care for everyone, we must shift our focus away from the health insurance reform to, first establishing a solid network of primary medical care. This paper, hence, will focus on explaining the effectiveness of the Community Health Centers in both theoretical and empirical terms.
