Primary Healthcare

The Primary Health Care (PHC) program, based in the Associateship of Family Health at the Texas Department of Health, began in 1987. The Primary Health Care Services Act, H.B. 1844, which grew out of the indigent health care legislative package enacted by the 69th Texas Legislature in 1985, created the program.

The PHC program provides prevention-oriented, education-based primary health care to Texas residents who could otherwise not receive such care. Eligibility is limited to those Texas residents whose gross family income is at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (FPIG) and who do not qualify for any other programs or benefits that provide the same services.
