A health care provider in Missoula has been awarded a grant worth more than $925,000 to expand services to Seeley Lake.
    
The Missoulian (http://bit.ly/1gxeNvS ) reports the grant to Partnership Health Center was part of $150 million worth of grants given under the Affordable Care Act to support 236 new health centers nationwide.
    
Partnership Health Center executive director Kim Mansch says roughly 75 percent of the people who use the organization's services have no health insurance. Patients pay for primary care, behavioral health and dental services on a sliding fee scale.
    
Partnership Health Center currently provides dental services four days per month in Seeley Lake, but Mansch says other care is limited. She said the new clinic is expected to serve more than 1,650 people.
