Rural Health Clinics
About the Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) Program
The Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) program is intended to increase primary care services for Medicaid and Medicare patients in rural communities. RHCs can be public, private, or non-profit. The main advantage of RHC status is enhanced reimbursement rates for providing Medicaid and Medicare services in rural areas. RHCs must be located in rural, underserved areas and must use midlevel practitioners.

Rural Health Clinic Workshops
One major educational component of the MRHA resides in our Rural Health Clinic Workshops. These workshops are designed for clinic staff, physicians, and administrators in order to receive updates regarding billing and coding, health policy, and best practices for grant application, among other topics.
These workshops are held throughout the year in various locations throughout Mississippi. If you would like to host a workshop or learn more about future workshops not currently listed on the calendar of events, please contact us at 601.898.3001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
