Rural Health Clinic Fact Sheet

The Rural Health Clinic Services Act of 1977 (Public Law 95-210) was enacted to address an inadequate supply of physicians serving Medicare patients in rural areas and to increase the use of non-physician practitioners such as nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) in rural areas. RHCs are paid an all-inclusive rate (AIR) for medically-necessary primary health services and qualified preventive health services furnished by a RHC practitioner.
