警告:23财年拨款法案更新

The 2023 appropriations bill provides for funding levels for several rural health programs.  该法案于2022年12月29日由拜登总统签署.

$5 million was designated in this bill to establish an Office of Rural Health at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This Office of Rural Health at the CDC will enhance implementation of CDC’s rural health portfolio, coordinate efforts across CDC programs and develop strategic plan for rural health.

该法案还支持 乡村医院 以及核心农村卫生保健项目,具体如下:

农村医院项目

  • $3.450亿美元 农村社区设施计划 还有200万美元 农村医院技术援助方案 through the United 状态s Department of Agriculture Rural Development (RD) programs.
  • $64.300万美元 医疗保险乡村医院弹性补助计划(比2022财年的资金水平增加了200多万美元). 64美元的.3 million includes $21 million for the Small Rural Hospital Improvement Grant Program and $5 million to continue funding the Rural Emergency Hospital (REH) TA Program.

继续实施农村核心卫生保健方案

2010年法定现收现付法(PAYGO)

The 2010年法定现收现付法(PAYGO) required a mandatory spending and revenue legislation to not increase the federal budget deficit.  The PAYGO sequester was waived through 12/31/22 with the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act.  PAYGO sequester is now deferred until January 2025, which avoids a 4% cut to Medicare reimbursement.

远程医疗

远程医疗的灵活性现在将持续到2024年12月31日. In the FY 2022 omnibus appropriations bill extended telehealth flexibilities for 151 days post-PHE. 该法案扩展了这些关键的公共卫生条款, 包括到12月31日的纯音频灵活性, 2024.
