Critical Access Hospital FundingIssue brief
Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) are vital to providing care for those in rural areas but face unique challenges due to their location. They operate on small profit margins and little cash reserves on-hand which makes them very vulnerable to fluctuations in patient behavior and other cost drivers. COVID-19 and the government response have caused numerous disruptions.
