Nurse-managed health centers are critical safety net providers. Increasing support of these centers is a promising strategy for the federal government to reduce health disparities. To continue as safety net providers, nurse-managed health centers need to receive equal compensation as other federally funded providers. Ultimately, the long-term sustainability of nurse-managed centers rests on prospective payments or similar federally mandated funding mechanisms.
