How Well Do Government Funded Health Centers Perform?
Research shows government-funded community health centers provide better care than private practices.
Researchers at Stanford University looked at 18 common conditions seen in primary care.
They found community doctors who serve low-income and uninsured patients performed as well as private practice doctors in 13 of those areas.
Community doctors actually performed better in the other 5 areas.
Researchers say one reason for the superior care is community doctors are not as profit driven.
