Phoenix, AZ, February 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Hundreds of Health Center Advocates were in DC February 6, meeting with Congress demanding a fix to the Health Center Funding Cliff. CompuGroup Medical (CGM) supported these efforts and invited their partners to participate in this movement by wearing red in support of all health centers. $7.8 billion dollars in federal grant funding was approved for the Community Health Center program.
Backstory - Over five months ago, Congress failed to extend funding for Health Centers and fix a 70% funding cliff. This failure to act put millions of patients, more than 50,000 jobs, and nearly 3,000 health center sites at risk. HCAdvocacy. (n.d.). Red Alert for Health Centers [Press release].

CompuGroup Medical hopes you support all health centers; let Congress know how their decisions have negatively impacted our industry and risked the backbone of the American health care system.
