FQHCs offer the same major traits:
- They provide quality health care to all people regardless of insurance status or income level.
- They are staffed by highly competent health care professional teams.
- Their fees are based on the patient’s ability to pay.
- They are community controlled by patient majority boards of directors.
Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition
The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.
NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition is the most widely-used way to transform primary care practices into medical homes.
