FQHCs are public or tax-exempt entities which receive a direct grant from the United States under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, or are determined by HHS to meet the requirements for receiving such grants. This statute defined the services to be provided by FQHCs for Medicaid purposes and included special payment provisions to ensure that they would be reimbursed for 100% of their reasonable costs associated with furnishing these services (Leifer and Freedus, 2011).
For more information please refer to State Medicaid Director Letter #10-013 from August 6, 2010.
