PCAs were established to create economies of scale for health centers, maximize the federal Section 330 investments in states, assess and monitor the policy and regulatory environments, and assist health centers in adapting to changing demands from an evolving health care environment. PCAs facilitate collaboration between health centers and Governors, Medicaid Directors and state health departments to educate them on the health center program and its value to patients, and to work with health centers on the best approaches to meet the needs of their constituents.
