Martin O'Malley's policies onHealthcare

Set a goal of achieving universal access to primary, behavioral, and oral health care

The federal government’s investment in community health centers has been a resounding success, enabling 1,300 organizations to provide high-quality care to nearly 30 million Americans across rural and urban communities—and saving the health care system over $20 billion a year by managing care more effectively.

O’Malley will call for restoring funding for community health centers to pre-sequestration levels, protecting the Health Center Fund as an annual budget item, and expanding funding so that community health centers can serve an additional 10 million patients every year. O’Malley will also create a competitive grant program to pilot new models for care coordination and health promotion, ensuring that community health centers remain on the vanguard of primary care innovation.
