Congress must act now to ensure that community health centers in California, and around the nation, continue to have the funds needed to provide services and resources to people in our most vulnerable communities. On November 16, health centers across the state call on their leaders in Congress to take immediate steps to fund health centers.
Alameda Health Consortium has joined four of its greater Bay Area consortia representing 900,000 patients and 216 health center locations to urge Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris to #FixTheCliff. Without federal funding reauthorization, health centers in the Alameda Health Consortium are facing a $19 million dollar loss that will leave 20,000 of our neighbors without access to care. Across the greater Bay Area, 70,000 patients could lose care.
In addition, we join our partners, Alameda Health System, Alameda Alliance for Health, Alameda County Health Care Services Agency and the Alameda County Board of Supervisor Wilma Chan in a Fight for Medi-Cal Campaign statement to our Members of Congress.
