Dear Rural Health Clinics –

I presented the following information to the National Association of Rural Health Clinics (NARHC) Spring Conference in 2015.  This presentation provides and overview of the Merit-Based Incentive Program announced by CMS.  This program was codified in the Medicare and S-CHIP Re-Authorization Act of 2015.

Volume to Value Spring 2015

To date: Rural Health Clinics are largely unable to participate in  Medicare Quality Incentives.  As person passionate about Rural Health Clinics, I believe this is to our detriment.  If Rural Health Clinics to not get in the quality game, we will be left behind.  We all know that the Rural Health Clinic program is essential to our ability to provider primary care in rural areas.

Please let me know how we can help your Rural Health Clinic navigate these issues.

Best Regards,

Charles James
