Over a dozen primary health care centers in Florida will receive more than $21million to efficiently serve more patients. The Affordable Care Act is providing the grants to expand and improve these community health care facilities. National Association of Community Health Care Centers Policy Director Dan Hawkins says the money is meant to avoid higher operating costs.
Nationwide, the grants are to be used for projects that should expand healthcare access to an additional 860,000 patients.
