Newly released data from the United States Department of Health and Human Services Uniform Data System, an ongoing annual nationwide reporting system, show that in 2017, the nation's community health centers provided outreach, comprehensive primary health care, patient support services, and care management to nearly 28 million patients. This dramatic growth in access to primary health care, a major health policy advance for low-income and medically underserved communities, is the result of a steady, bipartisan investment, begun by President George W. Bush, dramatically expanded under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and continuing into the present. This policy brief provides an overview of the latest data.
