Service Volume and Financial Resources
During 2012, CHC provided 179,395 medical and dental visits to 56,310 patients. 44% of our total patient population is uninsured.
While CHC has been a recipient of federal funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Primary Health Care, these funds have by no means kept pace with growing needs or economic changes within the healthcare industry. Total revenue $31,840,209 in 2011-2012. With federal grant funding representing 24% of our total operating revenue.
The balance of our funding comes from Medicaid, public and private insurance programs, and Medicare; patient payments; state and county service contracts; local grants; and group and individual donations.
