Ten critical access hospitals in Montana, Nevada and North Dakota began participating Aug. 1 in a three-year demonstration that will test new models of integrated, coordinated health care in sparsely populated rural counties, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced today. The Frontier Community Health Integration Project Demonstration will test whether enhanced CAH payments for telemedicine, skilled nursing/nursing facility and ambulance services improve health outcomes and reduce Medicare expenditures.
