The Montana Primary Care Association works to educate and advocate on both state and federal policies that affect Community Health Centers (CHCs), Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs), and their patients.

MPCA monitors, analyzes, and works on legislative and regulatory policies that impact CHCs, UIOs and their patients. We advocate for policies that will increase access to health care including recipients of Medicaid, Medicare, and CHIP, and those patients who are insured, uninsured or underinsured. We also advocate for policies that will support CHCs and UIOs in their role as the largest, proven primary health care system in the state.

MPCA’s policy engagement includes:

  • State and federal legislative proposals
  • State and federal regulatory environment and administrative rules
  • Media and public communications
  • Grassroots engagement
  • Policy resources development and distribution
