Federally Qualified Health Centers are clinics that offer
low-cost medical care. It does not matter whether
the person qualifies for Medicaid or has health insurance.
The cost of care is based on income. There is a list
of health centers in the brochure "Exploring Medicaid".
The brochure comes in two versions depending on where a
person lives. One version of Exploring
Medicaid is for people living in the Wasatch Front
(Salt Lake, Utah, Davis, Weber,
and Morgan Counties). The other version of
is for people who live in other areas of the state. In either
version, look for telephone numbers for Federally Qualified
Health Centers in the Resource section of the brochure.
