Iowa Hospital Association’s Rural Reform Proposal

From the IHA

Ed. Notable for the creation of a Rural Emergency Hospital status.

The health care landscape is changing, particularly in rural areas. In 2019, the IHA Board established a Rural Health Care Innovation Task force to review innovative payment and delivery system models being deployed across the country and develop recommendations to be shared with Iowa’s congressional delegation. IHA and its members have developed a proposal to address rural hospitals’ growing financial challenges. The IHA Rural Reform Proposal is a three-pronged approach to providing help to Iowa’s rural hospitals. It is designed to help hospitals right size to maintain access to critical services in their communities and to provide adequate payment for those essential services.
