About Konza Prairie Community Health Center
Konza's History and Purpose:
In 1994, Konza Prairie Community Health Center was formed to meet the unmet health care needs of the Junction City/Geary County area. We are governed by a Board of Directors made up of local people, a majority of which are Konza clients. Konza Prairie Community Health Center is a not-for-profit charitable organization and one of several hundred Community Health Centers partially funded by the federal government.
A chief objective of the Community Health Center is to make it a place where people want to come for their health care. We seek to remove any barriers, which hinder our clients from obtaining the services they need. Our services are available to all, regardless of race, creed, national origin, language, gender, or financial status. A sliding-fee scale is applied to fees when appropriate.
We saw our first patient June 1, 1995, and are continuing to expand services and add providers as best we can to serve our community.
What is a Community Health Center?
Community health centers (CHCs) are mission-driven organizations that provide culturally appropriate, comprehensive primary care to vulnerable and medically underserved populations. The term "community health center" refers to the more than 900 diverse public and non-profit organizations that receive federal funding under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. CHCs emerged from the grass-roots civil rights activism of the 1960s and 1970s and were initially federally funded as part of the "War on Poverty" to serve the medically indigent. CHCs in the US now serve more than 13 million patients each year.
Because Konza receives some federal financial support, we can offer a sliding fee scale to those who qualify. This scale makes health care affordable to people with, or without insurance.
Payments and Insurance
As a minimum there is a small office visit fee, unless your insurance specifies otherwise. Konza accepts many insurances such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, Medicare, Tri-Care and many more. We will even take care of filing the paperwork for you.
Konza can also offer businesses a health coverage plan for their employees, and spare the expense of health insurance costs.

We released this video in the spring of 2011 to give the community a little bit of insight on the friendly environment here at Konza.
