2014 Policy Institute DocumentsThe National Rural Health Association's Rural Health Policy Institute is the largest rural advocacy event in the country. At the conference you can learn firsthand about the development and implementation of health care policy at the federal level and meet with your members of Congress.
NRHA has developed three requests or items for members to ask their senators and representatives to support at the 25th Annual Policy Institute:
1) Protecting and strengthening all rural Medicare programs.
2) Modifying the Medicare sequestration process to avoid disproportionate harm to the rural health safety net.
3) Appropriate funding levels for rural health programs for the remainder of fiscal year 2015.
