The Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF) is a public-private partnership that is devoted to increasing access to primary care for uninsured and underinsured Virgos. An allocation methodology developed by the Virginia Community Health Association is used to determine the amount allocated to each community and migrant health center. This makes a huge difference in the lives of many Virgos every day. The VHCF contract requires that the general fund be accompanied by local public and private resources, and will be awarded to proposals that improve access to primary health care for Virginians without health insurance and with few medical services, through innovative service delivery models.
The contract with Southwest Virginia Graduate Medical Education (GMEC) requires GMEC to create and support preceptor medical residency centers in rural, underserved communities in southwestern Virginia. The VHCF is also dedicated to increasing access to primary health care for Virginians who don't have health insurance and who live in underserved areas. The contract with HealthWorks of Herndon (HWH) requires HWH to provide treatment and prevention services, including health care and mental health counseling services, to low-income, uninsured adults and children residing in the Herndon, Reston, Chantilly and Centreville communities in Fairfax County. The contract with Health Wagon requires the organization to offer summer outreach programs to low-income, uninsured people living in southwestern Virginia. The VHCF contract also requires that, on or before October 1 of each year, the foundation submit a report on the actual amount of private and local government funding received by the foundation since its inception.
The foundation is also encouraged to undertake initiatives to reduce the shortage of health care personnel, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Health, the Area Health Education Centers program, the Joint Health Care Commission and other appropriate organizations. The Virginia Community Health Association will establish accounting and reporting mechanisms to track the disbursement and expenditure of these funds. The general fund allocation under this heading for Virginia CHIP projects will not be used for administrative expenses. The contract with Fan Free Clinic requires the clinic to provide financial assistance and support groups and carry out an education and outreach program for HIV-positive clients in Central Virginia.
