The Office of Primary Care & Rural Health Development

Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC's)

The Office of Primary Care & Rural Health Development, through the Primary Care Services Resources and Coordination and Development grant seeks to expand community-based primary health care for Oklahoma's population.  FQHC's play an important role in making primary, mental and dental/oral health services available to Oklahomans.  

Federally Qualified Health Centers are public and private healthcare organizations serving Medically Underserved Areas (MUA's).  FQHC's in Oklahoma and across the country share the following features:

  • Provide comprehensive primary health care services to a high need community,
  • Make services available to all, with costs or fees adjusted based on ability to pay,
  • Enhances access to health care by offering supportive services (transportation, education, translation, etc.),
  • Overseen by a community board, where health center patients must form a majority (51 percent or greater) and represent the population served, and
  • Achievement of other financial, clinical and regulatory accountability standards.
