Participating physicians, dentists, pharmacies, and labs provide services at reduced fees and the Fairfax County Government covers all administrative costs. All donations go directly to providing medical and dental services. A winner of numerous area and national awards, including the prestigious Ford Foundation/Harvard University Award for Innovations in Local Government, the MCCP has been replicated throughout the United States and is a model.
