    Default The Cost of Residency Training in Teaching Health Centers

    Policymakers have long been concerned about the adequacy of the U.S. primary care workforce, especially in rural and low-income areas. In an effort to respond to increased demand for primary care services from new private health insurance markets and Medicaid coverage expansions under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Congress authorized the creation of the Teaching Health Center (THC) Graduate Medical Education (GME) program, a $230-million, 5-year initiative that began in 2011. The program was designed to increase the number of primary care physicians and dentists trained in community-based settings, on the basis of the well-documented principle that doing so will build long-term clinical capacity in those communities.
