Senator Schumer Announces MDH and LVH Legislation with Senator Grassley

Today, Senator Charles Schumer announced legislation that will extend the Medicare-Dependent Hospital Program and the Low-Volume Hospital Program, which are critical to rural hospitals. This legislation introduced by Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Schumer will extend these two programs that are set to expire on Sept. 30, 2012 for another year. “Rural hospitals are the lifeblood of rural economies throughout upstate New York, and they deserve our support. Efficiently supporting our rural hospitals and their patients allows medical facilities in the North Country to continue providing high quality health services, and is pivotal for our community and our economy,” said Senator Schumer in a press release. “The continued existence of these Medicare programs is critical to the financial stability of hospitals in the North Country, and will help enhance quality of life in our rural communities. We cannot let these programs end, and I will fight tooth and nail to provide New York’s rural hospitals with the support they deserve.” NRHA applauds Senators Schumer and Grassley for their leadership on this legislation.
