Critical Access Hospital Coalition

Critical Access Hospitals serve a vital role in the health of rural communities

A consortium of innovative health care leaders representing Critical Access Hospital (CAH) facilities across the country. As the Coalition grows, we continue to exclusively focus on important issues impacting CAHs. The CAH Coalition’s sole purpose is to assist policy makers in understanding the unique needs of CAHs so that high quality health care is sustained in rural communities.

The CAH Coalition advises policy makers on the needs of CAHs to ensure resources are available for rural health care for generations to come. We work with members to develop proactive solutions, determine best practices, and advocate on behalf of CAHs and the communities they serve.

The National Alliance for Nursing Education

nane-logo-1

The National Alliance for Nursing Education (NANE), a strong group of nursing and allied health colleges, has been working to assure that CMS “pass-through” funds outlined in the federal regulations (42 CFR 413.85) continue to flow as accrediting bodies and the federal government take actions that threaten this important revenue.

More than 150 hospital-based colleges receive this ”pass-through” funding, and our latest analysis shows that dozens of schools receive  more than $1 million in pass-through dollars every year. If this funding was eliminated, tuitions would increase and many schools would close.
