HRSA sent an update today, recognizing that health centers are well-positioned to play an important role in delivering critical services and assisting local communities during the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).


Latest News

HRSA continually updates their Health Center Program COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) webpage. Yesterday, these FAQs were added:

  • What are health centers required to do to ensure their preparedness for a disease outbreak such as COVID-19?

  • Will BPHC conduct scheduled Operational Site Visits or other site visits?

  • In event that providers or patients cannot present at, or work from, a health center site, can health centers use telehealth to provide services to a patient at a location that is not an in-scope service site? 

  • Can this also occur if the health center provider and patient are at their homes?

  • Can health centers reduce the delivery of some required or additional services (e.g., dental services, physical therapy)?

  • Can health centers conduct screenings or triage of patients outside of their service sites?

  • Which health centers would be considered eligible to add temporary sites based on the COVID-19 public health emergency?

  • When do I need to submit a Change in Scope request to add a temporary site due to an emergency?
