House C.R. 144 Recognizes Value, Benefits, Importance of Community Health Centers as Health Care Homes

U.S. Representatives Michael Capuano (MA) and Kay Granger (TX) submitted concurrent resolution (CR) 144 on June 4 which recognizes the value, benefits, and importance of Community Health Centers as health care homes.  “…Whereas Community Health Centers currently form the backbone of the health care safety net in the United States, caring for more than 1 of every 5 low income uninsured people in the United States and providing almost 1 of every 5 Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Program office visits…” CR 144 was referred to the House Committee on Energy & Commerce. Please ask your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor CR 144.
