The Fairfax County Community Health Care Network (CHCN) provides primary health services for low income, uninsured residents of Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church, who cannot afford primary medical care services for themselves and their families.
CHCN services are provided through a partnership of health professionals, physicians, hospitals and local government and provide the kind of medical care offered in a family doctor's office.
When medically necessary, on-site referral specialists are available to help link enrolled patients with specialty care services.
