Aspire awarded distinguished federal status
The Times


Aspire Indiana Health today announced that it has earned look-alike status as a Federally Qualified Health Center.

This distinction comes just two years after the formation of Aspire Indiana Health, a primary healthcare non-profit organization affiliated with Aspire Indiana.

Look-Alike status means that Aspire Indiana Health has achieved all of the standards required to be a Federally Qualified Health Center, or FQHC. FQHCs are community-based healthcare providers that receive resources from the HRSA Health Center Program to provide primary care services in underserved areas. FQHCs have to fulfill a myriad of requirements, including providing a sliding fee scale based on ability to pay and operating under a governing board that includes patients.

While FQHC Look-Alikes do not receive Health Center Program funding, they are eligible for reimbursement under FQHC Medicare and Medicaid payment structures. They are also eligible to purchase discounted medications through the Federal Drug Pricing Program, receive automatic Health Professional Shortage Area designation, and may access National Health Service Corps providers.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for Aspire Indiana Health and is a milestone in our continued integration efforts," said Jerry Landers, Aspire Indiana Health executive director. "This status will significantly impact the way AIH can provide services to the most vulnerable in our community."

The new FQHC Look-Alike status applies to all current Aspire Indiana Health clinical locations in Hamilton, Madison, and Marion counties located in central Indiana.
