"am I rural"

How can I verify that my geographic area status is rural?

RHIhub's Am I Rural? tool can be used to help determine whether a specific location is considered rural based on various definitions of rural, including those used as eligibility criteria for federal programs, such as those administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy. HRSA's Rural Health Grants Eligibility Analyzer determines official geographic eligibility for rural health grants. HRSA also offers a Medicare Telehealth Payment Eligibility Analyzer and a Medicare Physician Bonus Payment Eligibility Analyzer. The information provided by these tools addresses only the rural aspect of a program's requirements.
