From Rural Health Voices:
There are a number of small but vital discretionary programs that help form the rural health safety net. Especially in hard economic times, these programs play an important role in making sure 62 million rural Americans have access to critical primary, emergency and hospital services.
Senators Kent Conrad and Chuck Grassley are sending a letter to appropriators in support of rural health care program funding in the Labor HHS Appropriations bill and the National Rural Health Association strongly urges individuals to call their Senators and urge them to sign on to this critical letter. A copy of the letter can be viewed here.
The items listed in the letter are PROGRAMMATIC requests and have long enjoyed strong, bipartisan support. Please show your support for the needs of rural health care providers by contacting your Senators today
