Community-Based Primary Care
The Community-based Primary Care Clinic (CBPCC) program assists clinics in improving access to quality health care with an emphasis on community-based services and reducing health disparities for underserved populations. Grant funds are intended to make primary medical and dental care, prescription drugs, and preventive health care services accessible and affordable to underserved Kansas residents, including uninsured individuals and those enrolled in public insurance programs that are operated by the State of Kansas and/or federal government with eligibility based on income (KanCare).
Clinics applying for state CBPCC Grant Program funding are expected to serve as "safety net" clinics in their communities. Applicant clinics must be not-for-profit or publicly-funded clinics providing at least primary medical and/or dental care services (or planning to provide at least primary care medical and/or dental services for clinics not yet in operation).
Funded clinics must have a policy of non-discrimination in the provision of health care services, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. Clinics must provide services in their service area regardless of ability to pay, including a discounted fee schedule with reasonable charges for individuals below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The discounted fee schedule must be in writing and information must be publicly posted to ensure that patients are aware of its availability. Patients below 100 percent of the federal poverty level should be charged only a nominal fee or receive free care. Patients above 200 percent of the federal poverty level may be charged the full fee for services.
Clinics receiving for the CBPCC grant funds apply annually during the Aid-to-Local application cycle, open during the first quarter of each calendar year. Applications are completed electronically through KDHE web-based system, Catalyst.
New applicants should submit a written request indicating their intent to apply to the Office at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 1, 2017. Upon receipt of letter and required information, the Office will review to ensure the new applicant meets qualifications to apply for the CBPCC Grant Program and will provide a response back in 3-4 business days.
The Kansas Legislature appropriates state general funds to assist in the development and operation of clinics that focus on improving access to quality health care with an emphasis on community-based services and reducing health disparities for underserved populations. The Community-Based Primary Care Clinic Program Grant Program began in State Fiscal Year 1992 with 9 grantees receiving a total of $1,000,000 and has grown to now include 40 grantees receiving over $7,000,000.
