Family Health Center Program

​​​Family Health Center has a structured, insurance-like program that can help with health care services at other medical locations.

​How does Family Health Center Program work?

We partner with doctors and other providers to deliver health care services through Family Health Center Program. It functions similar to health insurances, but is not considered credible coverage: Enrolled members pay a monthly program fee based on income and family size.

Family Health Center Program can help cover:​

  • Doctor visits
  • Eye exams
  • X-rays and lab services
  • Dental services
  • Substance abuse services
  • Case management
  • Medications
