Hoeven Announces More Than $1.5 Million To Improve Health Care In North Dakota

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) respectively have awarded two grants totaling more than $1.5 million to the Family Healthcare Center in Fargo and Minot State University (MSU). Details of the funds are as follows:

  • Family Healthcare Center in Fargo – $1,293,229 – These HRSA funds will be used to ensure the center can continue to serve the health needs of individuals in the Fargo area.
  • Minot State University – $238,000 – These ACL funds will be used by the North Dakota Senior Medicare Patrol, headquartered at MSU, to provide education to North Dakota seniors to help them better understand Medicare and Medicaid benefits and identify billing errors or potentially fraudulent activity.

“Today’s funds will help ensure that individuals in Fargo, regardless of income, have access to quality health care services,” Hoeven said. “These funds will also be used to help North Dakota senior citizens improve their understanding of Medicare so they can better use this program and flag any errors or fraud.”
