NRHA hosts free fly-in on July 30-31 to protect rural hospitals

Join NRHA on July 30-31 in Washington, D.C. for the March for Rural Hospitals to protect funding for rural hospitals across the country. If Congress does not act by Oct. 1, the Medicare Dependent Hospital (MDH) program and the Low Volume Hospital (LVH) adjustment will expire. MDHs are small rural facilities that serve a high percentage of Medicare patients.  Expiration will mean over 200 MDHs will lose millions of dollars, causing many facilities to reduce services, or worse, close doors, resulting in a devastating impact on rural seniors across the nation. Additionally, hundreds more rural facilities will also be severely harmed due to the Oct. 1 expiration of the rural “low-volume” adjustment, a Medicare payment  for rural facilities who incur higher incremental costs due to a low-volume of Medicare patients.  The loss of such funding will also hurt rural patients, forcing rural hospitals to limit critical services or close facilities. Keep rural hospitals doors open.  Join NRHA in its march on Capitol Hill to tell Members of Congress to protect these rural hospitals and the rural seniors that they serve.  Register here for this free event.
