Montana Affordable Health Center Gets 3 Year ACA Grant
An ACA program grant will help fund PureView, an affordable health center in Helena, Mont., serving 7,000 patients per year.
PureView Health Center is receiving $625,000 – the latest portion of a three-year federal grant. Most of the money will go toward salaries for care providers, case managers and other support staff.
PureView operates a medical and dental clinic at its main facility on Ninth Avenue. It also provides medical services for homeless patients at the God’s Love shelter and runs the Parker Medical Center in Lincoln.
The grant was officially awarded to Lewis and Clark County. PureView is linked to the county, but administered by an independent board on which one county commissioner sits.
Executive director Jill Steeley says 70 percent of the grant money comes from a program created by the federal Affordable Care Act.
