In 2016, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Health Center Program provided primary care to more than 25 million medically underserved patients through a nationwide network of community health center (CHC), health care for the homeless, migrant health center, and public housing primary care clinics.1 Although the latter 3 clinic types serve individuals with housing problems by definition, little is known about the scope of housing problems among CHC patients, who constitute 91% of Health Center Program patients nationally.1 We used data from a national survey to assess the prevalence and health-related correlates of housing problems among CHC patients.
Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program receives HHS funding and has Federal PHS deemed status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.
