Federally Qualified Health Center Users Continue to Have Limited Options for Health Care under Health Reform and Give Federally Qualified Health Centers Mixed Reviews

Abstract

We used data from the September and December 2014 waves of the Urban Institute’s Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS), as well as follow-up interviews with survey respondents from the December wave, to examine FQHC use in 2014. In the follow-up interviews, which were conducted between March and April 2015, we explored respondents’ reasons for going to FQHCs for care, their perceptions about the quality of care they have received at FQHCs, and their assessment of the options they have (or do not have) in where to obtain health care. In this brief we summarize the responses from the follow-up interviews.
