“FQHC” stands for Federally Qualified Health Center. A FQHC is a Community Health Center selected by the federal government to receive special funding because they provide comprehensive, quality care to anyone who needs it, regardless of ability to pay. Community Heath Centers provide high-quality healthcare that is affordable and accessible.
