Top 25 FQHCs by Visits & Compensation

Unsurprisingly, the federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) with the most visits are generally found in or near large cities. Ventura County, whose publicly funded centers had the highest volume, is located just outside Los Angeles.

A disproportionate number of high-volume FQHCs operate in California, likely due to the state’s high population and significant enrollment in Medi-Cal, the state’s version of Medicaid. The top 25 centers also had wide variations in the number of employed physicians as well as total compensation. Of the centers with the greatest number of patient visits, physician employment ranged from 23 to 139, and compensation ranged from $21 to $151 million. Neither is necessarily a strong indicator of volume, as some locations may be in rural areas and many can be staffed by physician assistants or nurses rather than physicians.
