Time is running out for health care centers

Edgar's picture

As a community health center across South Dakota, Horizon Health Care is committed to advancing our mission of providing quality and affordable health care to all South Dakotans, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. We provide health care services to people in communities large and small, especially targeting rural areas and underserved populations. We are job creators and economic engines for the communities we serve. We strive every day to foster healthy communities and healthy families.

Federal funding supports our efforts to provide these valuable services and ensure access to health care for all, funding that is now in jeopardy because of Congress’ inaction. The Community Health Center Fund is a significant funding source for health centers, providing 70 percent of all federal funding for the health center program. That funding, along with all of the funding for the National Health Service Corps, expired October 1, 2017, creating a devastating funding cliff that will have real impacts on your local health center, our patients, and the communities we serve we serve.
