HopeHealth Advocates Travel to Columbia and Washington D.C.

This spring, the HopeHealth Advocacy Committee and senior leadership joined other health center advocates for the South Carolina Primary Health Care Association’s State Policy & Issues Forum in Columbia, S.C., and the National Association of Community Health Center’s Policy & Issues Forum in Washington, D.C. The purpose of both annual forums is to meet with state and federal law makers to discuss the legislative priorities and concerns of health centers and their patients.

Some of the issues discussed at the state and national levels include the health center 330 funding that expires this fall, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, and the 340B drug pricing program. The overall message from health centers to lawmakers was that more than 25 million Americans rely on health centers for their primary and integrated care, and resources must remain available to keep these centers in our communities.
