New Information for Rural Emergency Hospitals
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated their fact sheet on the new provider-type designation that allows hospitals at risk of closure to remain in operation with Emergency Department services, observation care and a limited number of outpatient services. CMS recently added details for:
- Indian Health Service and other tribal-operated hospitals making the change to Rural Emergency Hospital (REH);
- Changes to monthly payment amounts to REHs and how they’re reported
- The HRSA supported REH Technical Assistance Center that is helping hospitals meet the requirements for converting to this new provider type.
