Health Center Billing & Finance


Billing and Financial Management are complex, yet essential pieces of operating a successful Health Center. The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) regularly measures Health Center financial performance across a variety of important factors including the total cost per patient and cost per visit. However, a Health Center’s fiscal well-being can also be evaluated and driven to support essential services, provide stability, promote cost-effectiveness, and inspire growth.

MPCA’s Billing and Finance Networks, trainings, technical assistance, and regular group communication on critical finance and billing issues offer timely, relevant support for Health Centers across the state in navigating the complex environment facing organizations today. For information on how to enroll in the specific network, click on the following links:
