New Policy Brief: CAH Use of Federal Funding and Regulatory Flexibilities

The Flex Monitoring Team (FMT) has released a new policy brief: Critical Access Hospitals’ Initial Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Use of Federal Funding and Regulatory Flexibilities. This brief uses survey data collected by the FMT about Critical Access Hospitals’ response during the first seven months of the COVID-19 pandemic and describes key findings from the survey including:

  • How many participating CAHs received federal funding and from which sources
  • Which regulatory waivers and flexibilities were most commonly used by participating CAHs
