Rural Hospitals: A Community’s Anchor

Rural hospitals provide essential health care services to nearly 51 million people. Because of their size, modest assets and financial reserves, and higher percentages of Medicare patients, small and rural hospitals disproportionately rely on government payments. 

Hospitals: Coordinating Care to Serve Patients

Hospitals are working together and with physicians and other community caregivers to provide patients with convenient, high quality and affordable care.

340B Drug Pricing Program

For more than 20 years, Congress has provided relief from high prescription drug costs through the 340b Drug Pricing Program. This program gives patients better access to drugs they need and helps hospitals enhance care capabilities by stretching scarce federal resources.

The 340B Drug Pricing Program Basics

340b Drug Pricing Program helps hospitals keep patients and communities healthy. Congress must preserve the 340B program to protect access to care.


Site-neutral Payment Proposals Threaten Access to Care

Americans rely heavily on hospitals to provide care for all patients, to serve as a safety net provider for vulnerable populations, and to have the resources needed to respond to disasters. These roles are not explicitly funded; instead they are built into a hospital’s overall cost structure and supported by revenues received from providing direct patient care.
