PHMC Health Network Summer Associate VISTA

PHMC Health Network is comprised of six Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) providing affordable, accessible, primary medical and behavioral health care and preventive services to the uninsured and underinsured patients in its service area. As rates of COVID-19 continue to decline regionally, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has set April 1, 2023, as the end of continuous coverage, permitted since the start of the pandemic, for Medical Assistance (MA) and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) recipients. Access to health insurance is crucial for Health Network patients, as it helps ensure they have access to all the medications and specialty care they need in order to manage their complex health care needs.
