About the Organization
The Texas Association of Community Health Centers, Inc. (TACHC) is a private, non-profit membership association that represents Texas safety-net health care providers. TACHC serves as the federally-designated primary care association for the state of Texas. Our members include community health centers, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) Look-Alikes, federally-designated migrant, public housing and homeless health care centers, health center networks and other providers who strive to meet the health care needs of the uninsured and underserved. TACHC offers a wide variety of services to assist members with providing high quality care and address specific needs of Texas health centers on policy & advocacy, administration, information technology and clinical care. Community health centers provide high-quality, affordable, primary and preventive health care services to populations who otherwise may lack access to medical care due to where they live, lack of insurance, language barriers, income level or their complex health care needs. Community health centers reach low-income and medically underserved communities and serve patients regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
