Federally-funded Health Centers (also known as HRSA Health Centers)

Next » « Previous


There are hundreds of Federally-funded health centers around the country that provide medical care regardless of your ability to pay. They are often run by the government's Human Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Such centers are often referred to as HRSA Health Centers.

If you have Medicare, these centers generally waive the Medicare Part B deductible and may waive or reduce the 20% coinsurance for Medicare-covered benefits for people with an annual income at or below the federal poverty level ($10,386 for an individual, $14,580 for a couple in 2009). They may also provide services not generally covered by Medicare.
