Senators Cortez Masto & Roberts Introduce Legislation to Help Support Rural Hospitals

On Tuesday, Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) introduced the Rural ACO Improvement Act. The National Rural Health Association’s Government Affairs team strongly supports this legislation because it would fix a glitch in Medicare’s reimbursement formula that inadvertently punishes rural health care providers when they reduce costs.
