OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials say over $1 million in funding will be used to help Oklahomans in need.
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services announced that $1,619,650 in Affordable Care Act funding will be used at three new health center sites in Oklahoma.
“The Affordable Care Act has led to unprecedented increases in access to health insurance. Part of building on that progress is connecting people to the care they need,” said Health & Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell. “Health centers are keystones of the communities they serve in Oklahoma. Today’s awards will enable more individuals and families in Oklahoma to have access to the affordable, quality health care that health centers provide. That includes the preventive and primary care services that will keep them healthy.”
The funds will be used at the Kiamichi Family Medical Center in Battiest, the Northeastern Oklahoma Community Health Centers, Inc. in Hulbert and Pushmataha Family Medical Center in Clayton.
