Partnership for Healthier Communities (PHC) is designed to identify uninsured children and adults and connect them to an appropriate and affordable source of quality healthcare services through programs like Medicaid, FAMIS, and free or low-cost medical care coverage programs.
PHC is a program of Inova Health System, with additional funding support from:
- Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF), - Virginia Department of Medical Assistance (DMAS), - U.S. Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
How does PHC work?
Through partnerships with the local school systems, governments and community outreach programs, PHC is able to identify children and adults in need of care and work with these families to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate assistance.
Services provided by PHC:

Emergency Department - PHC connects patients recently discharged from Inova Fairfax Hospital Emergency Department and provides one-on-one application assistance for Medicaid/FAMIS and/or will make referrals to safety net providers.

Collaboration with Local Schools - PHC works closely with the public schools in Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun County, and the cities of Alexandria and Manassas, to locate and assist uninsured students.
Outreach and Enrollment in the Community - PHC participates at community and school outreach events, health and resource fairs, and provides on-site enrollment assistance in the community.
Baby Shower - PHC provides education about Medicaid for Pregnant Women and Newborn, application assistance and what to expect after delivery with insurance.
