EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

This final report provides certain statistical data to requestors on the operations of Community Health Centers (CHC) and Migrant Health Centers (MHC). The review showed that 546 CHC and MHC served more than 5.8 million individuals in 1990, continuing a small but steady increase in the number of users annually. Children aged 14 or below represented 34.6 percent of the individuals served. Revenues received by the centers increased significantly over the 3 years covered by our review, with the greatest increases attributable to payments from the Medicaid program and CHC grants.
