TAKE ACTION TO SAVE OUR COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS
In September, Congress will take a vote that could cut the funding for Community Health Centers by 70%. This is drastic cut, as you can see, and would have a dreadful impact on all of our neighborhood CHC’s. Ashland Community Health Center relies heavily on federal funding which allows us to make sure that everyone has healthcare in our community. No one is turned away because they can’t afford primary health care.
Here are some statistics concerning our health center: 65% of our patients have incomes below 200% of poverty level; 51% are below 100% of poverty level; 34% are uninsured; 15% are on Medicaid; and 7% are covered by Medicare. CHC’s provide an average savings in patient care of 24% to the health care system each year.
We need your help right now to advocate for your health center and all health centers across the state and nation. Please call your senators and congressman at 1-866-456-3949 and follow a few easy instructions to be in put with contact with their offices. Tell the person you reach that our community needs our health center and ask Senators Tester and Daines and Congressman Zinke not to cut health center funding. Please do not put this off. The time for a vote will be here soon! Have a say in supporting health centers!!
