BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 8 (UPI) — The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services funded $150 million under the Affordable Care Act to support 236 new health centers, the secretary says.

Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of HHS, said the funding will help create primary care services for approximately 1.25 million patients in areas with historically high uninsured rates.

"We are committed to providing more people across the country with the quality patient-centered care they deserve," Sebelius said in a statement.
