Community health centers like Primary Health Care play a critical role in the healthcare system, particularly as we face this public health emergency. 

Without community health centers, the hospital system would be overwhelmed, putting an even larger life-threatening strain on the healthcare system.

We need your help to contact all of your members of Congress to tell them why funding for community health centers is essential to the health and strength of your community, particularly during this pandemic.

Email, call, then email and call again tomorrow.

We have always had broad support from both sides of the aisle, and for that we are grateful.

Here is what we need you to ask congress for:

  • Reauthorization of mandatory funding for Community Health Centers, THC program, NHSC through at least September 2021
  • Appropriation of $3.2 billion for “emergency funding”, (the initial projection was $1.32 billion and  is what is included in the current package, to the best of our knowledge) but the situation is more dire than anticipated
  • Permanent authorization of  Medicare telehealth, and not just a temporary fix during this pandemic

We have posted a sample phone or email script that you can use when calling your senators.

We need leadership and we need Congress to get it right. 

Email, call, then email and call again tomorrow.

We know you may have some free time with social distancing and we need all of your voices to advocate for our teams who are on the front lines of this pandemic, and for congress to know there is no time to spare in passing this funding.

Primary Health Care is committed to the health and safety of our staff, patients and community during the COVID-19 outbreak. Learn more about COVID-19 (coronavirus) and what national and state experts recommend here:
