NRHA supports senators’ letter to HHS

The National Rural Health Association applauds the co-chairs of the bipartisan Senate Rural Health Caucus for their letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell urging the agency to work toward including rural providers in Medicare and Medicaid quality measurement and improvement programs based on the recommendations of the National Quality Forum’s Rural Health Committee of which NRHA is a member.
The caucus co-chairs, Sens. John Barrasso (R-WY), Al Franken (D-MN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Pat Roberts (R-KS), urged HHS to convene a rural workgroup to identify measures and measure gaps for rural health care improvement to ensure quality programs are tailored to the unique experiences and challenges of rural health care.
NRHA supports this effort and will continue to work with our rural champions on Capitol Hill to shape these efforts going forward.
