AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Three health centers in Maine are getting more than $730,000 in funding through the Affordable Care Act.

The US Department of Health and Human Services said that the money will fund patient-centered medical homes. The department says the team-based model aims to increase access to care and help a patient be treated for several needs at one time.

Eastport Health Care, Island Community Medical Services in Vinalhaven and Katahdin Valley Health Center in Patten are the health centers in Maine that are receiving the funding.

The grants are part of $35 million that’s being given to 147 health centers throughout the country.
