"Tweener" Hospitals (or Low-volume Rural PPS Hospitals)

 National payment policies, specifically prospective payment systems (PPS), often fail to recognize the special characteristics and unique circumstances of small rural hospitals. Many rural hospitals are too large to qualify for CAH status, but too small to absorb the financial risk associated with PPS programs. AHA has and will continue to advocate for relief on behalf of low-volume small or rural PPS hospitals.
