Webinar – Rural Emergency Hospital Designation
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.
You are invited to join an informative webinar hosted by the Rural Health Redesign Center (RHRC) and Mathematica. This session 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).
When: August 9, 2023, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET
