Patient Health Education

As part of our "Health Commons" model, we value health education to help equip patients with the skills and information they need to better manage their health and prevent disease and injury. Talk with your provider about health issues such as managing diabetes and using insulin, and  glucometers (machines to measure blood sugar). Ask about our diabetes education classes, healthy cooking classes, breastfeeding support groups, and other opportunities to take charge of your health.

Ask Me 3 Ask Me 3 is a patient education program designed to promote communication between health care providers and patients


Our Patient-Centered Healthcare Home makes you feel welcomed and cared for by a team that:

  • Knows your health history and goals
  • Communicates effectively with you and with each other
  • Gives you appointments when you need them
  • Coordinates the complexity of labs, prescriptions, referrals and insurance

We go the extra mile to help our patients get help paying for their health care.

  • We assist with Medicaid applications
  • We help patients find insurance on the Marketplace
  • We enroll patients in special programs when they are eligible
  • We provide a discount for services based on family size and income

First Choice Community Healthcare is a 501 c3 non-profit, community-based health center system that provides access to quality, patient-centered, comprehensive health care to all people who need it -- regardless of ability to pay. We are a health center grantee under 42 USC 245b and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 USC 233 (g)-(n).
