Rural Emergency Hospital Conversion and Technical Assistance Educational Webinar
Target Audience: Critical Access Hospitals and other rural healthcare entities considering conversion to a Rural Emergency Hospital
Effective January 1, 2023, Medicare designated the Rural Emergency Hospitals (REHs) as a new provider type through the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. This new provider type is designed to address concerns that some rural hospitals would not be able to sustain operations and could be at risk of closure. CAHs and certain rural hospitals can convert to a REH, allowing continued access to certain health services in the communities they serve.
On August 9, 2023, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET, the Rural Health Redesign Center (RHRC) and Mathematica, will provide an overview of the REH provider type, considerations for converting, and conditions of participation requirements.
Attendees will also learn about no-cost technical assistance for hospitals considering a conversion, available through the Rural Emergency Hospital Technical Assistance Center (REH-TAC).
