Who We Are
In 1994, the California Primary Care Association (CPCA) was created to provide a unified voice for community health centers (CHCs) throughout California.
To lead and position community clinics, health centers, and networks through advocacy, education and services as key players in the health care delivery system to improve the health status of their communities.
Whom Our Members Serve
California is home to more thank 1,100 CHC sites, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), FQHC Look-Alikes, and Rural Health Centers. Combined, these CHCs serve more than 5.6 million patients annually through over 17 million patient encounters. More than 50% of these patients are Hispanic and 43% speak a primary language other than English. Nearly 65% fall under 100% of Federal Poverty Level, with 35% eligible for Medi-Cal subsidies and 30% uninsured.
How We Support Our Members
Why work with the California Primary Care Association?
Since 1994, CPCA has been the statewide leader and recognized voice for California’s 1150+ community health centers (CHCs).
With the advent of federal health care reform legislation, CHCs will play a key role in meeting the primary care needs of the millions of newly patients in California. Given CPCA’s prominent role in assisting our members during this historic time of growth, there has never been a better time for your business to have visibility as being part of the movement to help ensure “healthcare access for all.”
