Colorado health centers get $4.7 million to expand primary care

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Friday that it is awarding $4.7 million in Affordable Care Act funding to expand primary-care services at 16 Colorado health centers.
The money is intended to increase patient access to care by enabling the centers to hire an estimated 86 new staff members and to keep longer hours.
The grants are also meant to enable centers to provide new services, including oral health, mental and behavioral health, pharmacy or vision services.
HHS estimates the investment should help reach more than 26,000 new patients in Colorado.
