NRHA's Daily Yonder column: Sequestration, Medicaid and mortality
from The Daily Yonder
Medicare cuts from sequestration will cost rural communities 12,000 health care jobs. But even bigger problems await rural residents in states that don't expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Since rural areas have a disproportionate share of elderly and poor people, Medicaid expansion would have a more significant impact in saving lives and improving economic conditions for rural, writes NRHA's Brock Slabach.
