Rural Health Clinic Resources

The Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) program is intended to increase primary care services for Medicaid and Medicare patients in rural communities. RHCs can be public, private, or non-profit. A clinic with RHC status is eligible for enhanced reimbursement rates for providing Medicaid and Medicare services in rural areas. RHCs must be located within non-urban rural areas that have health care shortage designations, and they must use midlevel practitioners, such as physician assistants and/or nurse practitioners, as well as medical doctors.
