Description

The mission of the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) is to ensure that all New Yorkers, including those who are medically underserved, have continuous access to high quality community-based health care services including a primary care home. To do this, CHCANYS serves as the voice of community health centers as leading providers of primary health care in New York State. CHCANYS is a dynamic, team-oriented, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of and provides technical assistance to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) throughout New York State.

CHCANYS is New York State's Primary Care Association, comprised of all of the FQHCs in New York State. New York State's network of FQHCs ranks second in the number of patients served nationwide. FQHCs serve 1.6 million New Yorkers annually and are central to both federal and state health care reform strategies. In the past eight years, CHCANYS has experienced significant growth and now includes nationally recognized programs in health policy, quality improvement, health information technology, health system planning, and training and technical assistance.

Federally Qualified Health Centers are critical partners in the development and implementation of health reform efforts. As primary care medical homes, FQHCs have long histories and unique capabilities in effectively serving medically underserved populations and have been at the forefront of transforming the State's health care delivery system. FQHCs effectively utilize their comprehensive model to provide better careand achieve better healthat lower costs.

Likewise, with the implementation of the New York State of Health—the health insurance Marketplace, FQHCs play a significant role in enrolling and caring for newly insured patients while serving as the primary care safety net for the uninsured.
