The North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) was formed in 1978 by the leadership of community health centers, NCCHCA is comprised of membership from 38 health center grantees (including one migrant voucher program) and 2 Look-Alike organizations. NCCHCA is singularly focused on the success of health centers.
NCCHCA is the HRSA funded state Primary Care Association (PCA) and Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN). The non-profit, consumer-governed Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) we represent provide integrated medical, dental, pharmacy, behavioral health, and enabling services to over one-half million patients in North Carolina. FQHCs receive federal assistance for sliding-fee discounts to assure no one is denied access to care. NCCHCA represents FQHCs to state and federal officials and provides training and technical assistance on clinical, operational, financial, administrative, and governance issues.
Going forward, NCCHCA is positioning health centers as the state’s largest primary care provider network through Carolina Medical Home Network and its Independent Practice Association (IPA) and Accountable Care Organization (AC) subsidiaries.
