Support for the Rural ACO Improvement Act Builds  

The Rural ACO Improvement Act (S.2648) is gaining momentum on Capitol Hill. The recently introduced Senate bill would revise the Medicare Shared Savings Program benchmarking process and level the playing field for rural accountable care organizations. NRHA supports and applauds the legislation as a critical step to ensure all providers, regardless of zip code, are able to benefit from the program. We are proud that other associations with vested interested in the future of rural health care, such as AAFP, are joining us in supporting this meaningful rural health legislation.
