National Rural Health Association on recent COVID relief’s rural health provisions

With the $2 trillion dollar COVID relief package now signed into law, the ag sector reviews a number of provisions to protect and promote rural health.

National Rural Health Association’s Carrie Cochran-McClain speaks with RFD-TV’s own Tammi Arender on the legislation, the current state of rural health providers, and what she is hoping for moving forward.

“We are hopeful that we will see some formalization of some of the telehealth activities that have been happening throughout the COVID pandemic. We feel like there has been great progress for some activity reimbursement and other flexibilities that we would like to stay permanent. We also know that more needs to be done to continue to get access and workforce and other things to uphold our rural infrastructure throughout the country,” she explains.
