A “Safety Net Provider”
Clinicas is a community health center and migrant health center (CHC/MHC). We are federally qualified and part of network of health care providers across the nation commonly known as “safety net health care providers”.
Like other CHC/MHC’s, our organization plays a key role in providing healthcare because of our geographical location, primary care capacities, culturally sensitive services, and the special infrastructure and expertise we have developed to serve the uninsured and those with special needs.
As a CHC/MHC, we have ample experience in managing the utilization of services to control the cost of care.
