Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) play a critical role in serving our members. But COVID-19 has brought new challenges to these centers, leaving many struggling to provide care during the national public health emergency.
To help these centers address the crisis and build capacity for their long-term sustainability, UnitedHealthcare launched the FQHC capacity building Transformation Pathways Program. The program has invested $20 million in over 300 health centers in 22 states, including more than $732,000 invested in nine Maryland FQHCs.
In addition to this program and other initiatives to support our members and provider partners in Maryland, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan has donated:
- More than 260 healthy food deliveries to high-risk members
- 90,000 surgical masks to FQHCs
- 14,400 reusable cloth masks
- 5,000 units of hand sanitizer
- 10 computers to families through the Northwest Faith-Based Partnership.
