$100 Million in Grants for Health Centers Serves as a Reminder That Authorization Runs Out

The agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services are prolific in offering health care funding and research grant opportunities. In the wake of additional batch of health center teaching grants earlier this week, HHS on Tuesday announced $100 million in funding for 150 new health center sites.

The community-based health centers are at the vanguard for offering care to the rapidly expanding state Medicaid rolls. Also, the health center grants offer a reminder that mandatory funding for the health center program was authorized in 2010 by the health care overhaul law with $3.7 billion in current year funding, plus $3.5 billion in fiscal 2015, but the funding dries up in fiscal year 2016.

Vermont Independent Sen. Bernard Sanders, in a bill offered earlier year, launched an early effort to renew and boost health center funding through 2020.

Separately, on Wednesday HHS also announced the second batch of awards to 39 health groups to test innovative care models. The awards are part of the health care overhaul’s objective to find ways of improving the delivery of care at lower cost.
